      • Difference between Roxbury and West Roxbury? 

        I'm wondering what the differences are between Roxbury and West Roxbury? In terms of livability?

      They're completely different areas that, despite what you'd expect from the names, don't even border on each other. To be as politically correct as possible, West Roxbury is a relatively pricey suburb SW of Boston while Roxbury borders the city itself, and is having some problems these days, but they're working hard to improve it. "

      comparing apples and violent crime would work as a metaphor!
