North End

The North End

North End condos line the waterfront, as well as the lovely and historic streets. Few of the city’s neighborhoods offer more culture than Boston’s North End. Originally inhabited predominately by Italians, the North End’s residents are a vast mix of Italian-Americans and young professionals, drawn to the area due to it’s close proximity to Downtown Boston, and the Financial District. The North End is, and will be for some time, best known as the Italian district of Boston, which is quite obvious from the restaurants, eateries, décor, and people whom line the famous Hanover Street, which dissects the neighborhood.

Living in Boston’s North End, residents have the best of many worlds, as far as city living. The North End is located directly on Boston harbor, and surrounded by the Financial District, Faneuil Hall, Christopher Columbus Park, and the new Zakim Bridge. For residents and tourists alike, access to the North End is made easy on foot or bicycle from about any of Boston’s other neighborhoods, or by way of Interstate-93 or the Boston Harbor Water Taxi.

Due to the neighborhoods popularity, North End real estate has always been very desirable, and is increasing in demand. In the past, tightly grouped brick buildings lined intertwined one-way streets, in which residents would sit outside daily greeting one another as they walked by. Over the past two decades, the North End’s waterfront has undergone great expansion, with the development of several high-rise luxury condo developments. Waterfront living in the North End is some of the most sought after real estate in all of Boston.
