About North End

Once the home of many Italian American immigrants, who could not wait to move out, the North End is now one of the more sought after places to live in Boston.
Although many true Italians have moved on, the spirit of Italy still permeates this small section of the city. From authentic Italian markets and eateries to amazing bakeries and fun-filled feasts, the North End maintains the cobblestone charm that makes visitors feel they have stepped back in time.
The influence of the hip, young crowd of residents has not gone unnoticed. High-end boutiques have replaced defunct Italian joints, and the language of Italy gets harder to hear with every visit.
