Boston's North End--America's Quintessential Little Italy
Boston's North End is the quintessential Little Italy in America. Narrow cobble-stone streets, historical buildings, courtyards, lovely parks, and authentic Italian restaurants, grocery stores, and bakeries give the feel of an Italian village--but on America's shores. The community, which spans one-square-mile on the waterfront, hosts literally dozens of Italian festivals throughout the summer and fall. Saint Anthony's feast is held on Labor Day weekend and celebrates its 95th year in 2014.
