Urban Hike: North End

Recently while researching the blog posting about Anthony I had myself a genuine urban hike around the historic North End neighborhood of Boston. Don’t get me wrong I have been there many times as I work and go to school in Boston every day. This time I actually got out of the car and walked around a bit. ( As opposed to the usual double parking to run in for pastries!)

Have a look around this famous Italian neighborhood with me… (hint: click on a photo for an enlarged slide show)

And of course no visit to the North End is complete without sampling some of its famous Italian delights… mainly pastries, bread and pizza!

But obviously it always comes down to the ultimate choice when visiting the North End… Just ask anybody…they’ll let you know! ( Mikes or Modern!)

Well whatever you choose you won’t go wrong – they are both delicious!

But make sure you start here, at Galleria Umberto, because one they sell out of their famous pizza, calzone and arancini- and there ain’t no more till the next day! The line goes out the door at 11:30am!

Are you full yet? Only one last thing to do… Sit down and take a load off like this famous character from the neighborhood! (and believe me there are lots!)

  1. Sadly, these days I only wander around the North End when I’m showing an out-of-town visitor around. Thanks for the reminder that it’s something even those of us who live in Boston should do more often.
