About North End
One of Boston’s oldest and most historic residential areas, the North End still offers residents an old-world charm that is kept alive by its mostly Italian-American population. With the completion of the Big Dig, and the demolition of the old elevated Southeast Expressway, the North End has found itself reconnected to the rest of Boston and has seen an increased interest from both young professionals and families alike.

The North End Real Estate Market
Boston’s North End neighborhood holds the distinction being the oldest residential community in the city. Surprisingly, it’s been continuously settled since as far back as the 1630s. The age of the area is immediately clear on first glance - the classic cobblestone streets are a dead give away. As the home to more than 12 sites from the National Register of Historic Places, North End real estate features beautiful examples from several eras in Boston’s history. Top examples include the Old North Church, Paul Revere’s House and the Pierce-Hichborn House.
As with many of Boston’s more established and historic central neighborhoods, North End homes for sale are both highly sought after and in short supply. As you’d expect, the vast majority of the properties that hit the market are condos. These cozy units have all been lovingly refurbished. The exteriors are mainly clad in the rustic, red brick but the interiors are exceedingly modern, making great use of the space with a modern style sensibility.
Like much of Boston, the North End has seen noticeable change in its population in the last few decades. Young families and working professionals have moved for the North End for its convenient close proximity to downtown Boston and its appealing waterfront views. The community’s residents are a fiercely proud bunch, with a lot of pride in where they live.
North End Community Highlights
Although no where near as prominent as it was earlier in the past century, the North End’s strong Italian heritage is still present everywhere you look. Garnering the nickname “Little Italty”, the neighborhood’s Hanover Street is lined with an incredible variety of classic Italian restaurants, bakeries and cafes. The community proudly straddles two continents - with a strong European influence and heritage while taking big strides toward the modern age.
An increasingly modern population has brought with it more contemporary businesses alongside the classically Italian establishments of Little Italy. It’s not unusual to see a modern frozen yogurt shop alongside a more established and traditional Italian bakery. Locals have been resistant to change but often change is inevitable.
Locals are proud of their heritage and love to celebrate it. The North End community plays host to numerous annual festivals - most notably the summer feasts. St. Anthony’s Feast is a 3-day feast dating back to 1919 and is a popular date of social calendar's throughout the city.
With so much variety to offer, it’s easy to see why many homebuyers choose to make this lovely neighborhood their home. To start your real estate search in the North End, contact Terrier Real Estate today! Their Boston REALTORS® are here to help.
