North End

    Why Visit: A closest culinary touch of Italy on this side of the Atlantic. Bakeries, restaurants, and waterfront location make this a go-to destination. If you stop in any single neighborhood on a visit to Boston, this is likely the neighborhood you go to.

    Why Live There: Excellent commuting options, beautiful architecture and narrow webs of street, historic, neighborhood feel, and less expensive than other downtown neighborhoods.
