Welcome to the North End

Printed from: https://newbostonpost.com/2015/07/23/welcome-to-the-north-end/

Home to the Harbor walk and the Old North Church, the historic North End is the city’s oldest residential community, dating back to the 1630s. Known for its robust Italian American community, the North End hosts numerous Italian and seafood restaurants along Hanover Street and down its narrow alleyways.

At only .36 square miles, the North End is home to almost 9,000 residents. Although once a largely immigrant community, the North End is today made up of both Italian Americans and young professionals who are drawn to the neighborhood because of its tight knit feel and proximity to downtown Boston.

Boston’s Freedom Trail runs through the North End, where tourists can visit the home of Paul Revere and visit Copp’s Hill Burying Ground and enjoy terrific views of the Tobin Bridge and the Boston harbor below it.

Favorite attractions include the shops and numerous restaurants on Commercial Street, which is right on the waterfront, and the newly renovated Christopher Columbus Park that hosts a performing arts series during the summer months.
