Decidedly Italian in flavor and atmosphere, Boston's North End maintains an old world neighborhood charm despite a steady influx of tourism and commercialism. The streets are narrow and has some of the city's oldest buildings. The neighborhood enjoys a location convenient to the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Haymarket and downtown Boston.
The area has a few parks including Christopher Columbus Park, The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway and Puopolo Playground, recreational facilities and wharfs with marvelous harbor views. In addition to scores of local shops and restaurants, the Waterfront area is also home to the New England Aquarium, the Children's Museum and the Computer Museum.
The Freedom Trail will also take you through here, and you'll see sights such as the 1680 Paul Revere House and statue, Copp's Hill Burying Ground and the Old North Church. The Old North Church was built in 1723, and is the oldest standing church building in Boston. This is the location where the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent.
Parking in the North End is very limited. Many parkig spaces are reserved for residents. There are however, numerous parking garages in the area, such as the Government Center Garage, Dock Square Parking Garage and Haymarket Garage.
