The North End, Boston, Massachusetts, USA


The North End neighborhood in Boston has very strong Italian roots.   

Italian restaurants abound on Hanover Street, the main thoroughfare.

One street over, the North Street square features more Italian restaurants and Paul Revere's house (not shown here - but you can Google it if you want to see it).

And speaking of Paul Revere, above is the Old North Church, from which the lantern was hung on April 18, 1775 to alert him to make his ride to warn the colonists the British troops were on the move.

An Italian restaurant.

Another Italian restaurant.

And after all that great Italian food, here's the cigar parlour in the foreground and next door - dessert - Mike's Pastry, a North End fixture known far and wide for authentic cannolis and other sweet  treats.

Pizza and wine - what's not to like?
