Take A Trip In The Historical North End
The Italian immigrants flocked into the North End after the Irish and at the end of Jewish settlements, found a neighborhood in which was rundown, an overcrowded slum of deteriorating tenement buildings. The first Italian immigrants came to the north end in the 1860s from Genoa. Today the North End revolves around tourism. The old neighborhood grocery stores, vendors, butcher shops, shoe stores, and bakeries have been replaced by the most delicious restaurants. Italian remains the language spoken throughout the North End. Traditional old customs and traditions are still celebrated throughout the North End. The old city of Boston feel is still in the North End, it still has its original narrow streets and brick buildings, and a sense of community. Now that we sold you on the beautiful Noth End, stay with us Bricco Suites. Enjoy a front-row seat to an authentic Italian experience in Boston’s North End.

The Skywalk Observatory is located on the 50th floor of the Prudential Building and provides visitors with an overwhelming 360-degree view of the city.
