"Boston's Narrowest Street" North End Tip by zChris

North End, Boston: 8 reviews and 13 photos

  Jackson Avenue
by zChris

Jackson Avenue is the narrowest street I have come across in my explorations of Boston. It is just over a metre wide, perhaps less, and obviously cannot fit a single automobile, though it is paved just like any other navigable street. It is bordered by apartment houses to the right and the wall of Copp's Hill Cemetary to the right. It can be reached from Commercial Street, the wide boulevard which circumscribes the North End and runs along the waterfront.
