About The North End
The North End Real Estate
A Little Bit of History
The North End, established in the 1630s, is Boston’s first residential community. The neighborhood has a rich history in the Revolutionary War, much of which can still be seen today. In the 19th century, the neighborhood had an important and long-lasting transformation. With the influx of Italian immigrants to Boston, the district quickly became known as Boston’s Little Italy. While the Italian population has dwindled to about 30 percent, that heritage is still present in the streets of the North End to this day.
Life in the North End
Firstly, direct access to the best Italian food in the city cannot go unmentioned. There is a unique charm to being able to swing by places like the historic Regina Pizzeria and grab a pie on your way home from work. While Italian food reigns supreme, that’s not all the neighborhood has to offer. The changing demographic has brought an influx of new, varied dining options including juice bars and a taqueria.
For any commuters working downtown, the North End is a dream. If your office is in the Financial District, Downtown Crossing, or the West End, you’re looking at a quick 15-minute walk to work. Walk a little bit further and you’ll reach the Back Bay or the Seaport district in under 30 minutes. The North End also offers easy access to the MBTA’s Orange, Blue, and Green lines.
Another factor drawing people to the North End is its vibrant and welcoming community. The walkability of the neighborhood makes it so there are always people meandering through the brick-paved streets at all hours of the day. The Harborwalk along the waterfront is the perfect route for a morning jog or an afternoon walk. In the summers, you can expect to see festivals and parades almost every weekend.
Where To Live
From brand new condos to restored old buildings filled with character, there are many options for every kind of buyer or renter. The North End has recently been home to a variety of people: from students looking for good deals to business people looking for a high-end option in the heart of the city.
Most streets in the North End are lined with historic brick buildings outfitted with bay windows. Within these buildings are apartments filled with character. If you’re looking for a more modern option you can turn to one of the many new high-rise developments. These offer all the luxe amenities you could dream of. A more unique housing option for the design-savvy are the old office buildings that have been converted into apartments with an industrial look.
Advice for North End Buyers
“What draws buyers and renters to this area is its charm. What any unit may lack in size, it makes up for in quaint touches, like exposed brick and waterfront views. The abundance of community pride and friendly neighbors additionally make this neighborhood a great place to call home.
Buyers should have no fear, the North End continually has a surplus of properties available, even in the typically slower market timeframes. There’s also plenty of variety for any kind of renter—whether you’re looking for large luxury condos or smaller, family-run apartment buildings.”
