"Hanover Street and the North End" North End Tip by Paul2001
North End, Boston: 12 reviews and 12 photos
Favorite thing: Hanover Street is the main strip of the North End and Boston's "Little Italy". The street seems to be lined from end to end with Italian restaurants, many quite expensive. I came across to me as Boston's version of New York's Mulburry Street except that there are still Italians living here.
The North End is also the location of a couple of Boston's most important historical monuments. Paul Revere's House is just off of Hanover Steet while the Old North Street Church is just around the north end of the Hanover Street itself.
Historically, prior to the revolution, the residents here used to be predominately Tory but they emigrated to Nova Scotia after the war. The neigbhorhood then became popular with free blacks until the end of the 19th century when Italians immigrated here. Other immigrant groups also settled here but the Italians always dominated and the neighborhood evolved into Little Italy.
