Description of Local Area

Would you like to live in the oldest neighborhood in Boston? Would you love the opportunity to live in one of Boston’s most exclusive parts of the city? We have just the place – and it’s just down the road from Boston’s most famous Italian restaurants. You’ll be surrounded by some of America’s oldest churches and graveyards, cafes and bakeries, and it’s just a short walk from EC Boston! Boston’s famous Freedom Trail also runs through the North End, passing by burial grounds, some of which contain markers dating back as far as 1661. The North End is also close to Boston’s night life scene next to Faneuil Hall.

The North End is near all T stop lines and only a few minutes’ walk from EC Boston. There are stores, restaurants, and shops nearby, as well as the New England Aquarium.
