Dudley Square is the primary commercial center of the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, located at the intersection of Dudley Street and Washington Street. It has long been the center of African American culture in Boston, prior to which the area was primarily Jewish.
For most of the twentieth century, Dudley Square was a multi-mode transportation hub, centered at Dudley Station of the Washington Street Elevated, which closed in 1987. Several streetcar lines radiated to surrounding neighborhoods from the elevated station. Today it is a substantial bus terminal and terminus for the MBTA's bus rapid transit Silver Line.
