Contact: AARP MA Use "REAL POSS" discount code America's oldest neighborhood is a delightful labyrinth of narrow streets and exotic marketplaces. A gateway for immigrants from around the world, the North End is also home to the Old North Church, Copp's Hill Burying Ground, and the Paul Revere House. Isolated from the rest of downtown by the construction of the old Central Artery in the 1950s, the North End remains largely preserved from modern development. Upon entering the North End, you will be greeted by the new North End parks of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. Walking among the Italian markets and one of Boston's largest collections of colonial buildings, you'll hear the story of a changing neighborhood from the time of Cotton Mather, to the exploits of Paul Revere, the rise of the Fitzgeralds, the fall of molasses, and present day re-gentrification.
