Known for its selection of Italian Restaurants, outdoor fruit stands and its tight knit community, the North End is one of the most vibrant and festive areas to live in. The North End's character filled apartment buildings, humble churches and narrow alley ways resemble images of old Europe. The North End has a wide selection of pastry shops, cafes and fine-dining options to choose from. Revered for its intimate atmosphere, stellar dining options, and landmark status, North End’s slanting apartment buildings, humble churches, and narrow alleyways conjure visions of old Europe.
