There's perhaps no other neighborhood that best represents Mayor Thomas Menino's vision as the "Urban Mechanic" than Roxbury's Dudley Square.

People in the Dudley Square neighborhood join Morning Edition to give a sense of what Menino meant to the revitalization of their neighborhood. Hear the full interviews in the audio player above.
