The North End of Boston

I recently had the fantastic opportunity to move to Boston.  More importantly the North End.  For those of you that aren't familiar the North End is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston.  Extremely historic and home to places like the Old North Church, Paul Revers's house and Coop's Hill burial ground.  All places on the Freedom Trail. Some of which date back to pre revolutionary war times.  With Names we've all heard and studied. 

Beyond all that, The North End was settled by the earliest Italian immigrants to Boston.  So when the tourists walk down Hanover St today, which splits the entire neighborhood, they hear the sounds and smell the sents of Italy.  It's like you've be transported to some small Italian village outside Rome.  Amazingly, you can walk around and see men drinking espresso and smoking a cigar, knowing it's what they've  done for years.  

For a photographer The North End is a menagerie of unbelievable characters, sites and images just waiting to be captured! Here are just a few to start.  I can't wait to document whats out there.
