The North End of Boston occupies the northeastern corner of the city beyond Washington Street and Columbus Circle. It is the city’s oldest residential neighborhood. Once home to revolutionary heroes such as Paul Revere, the area now draws new residents. Residents tend to avoid the tourist crowds on Hanover Street. Instead, they step out of their apartments and gather for thin-crust pizza and locally-brewed Sam Adams beer at Benevento’s Brick Oven Pizza and Kitchen, or cross Salem Street for an espresso at Boston Common Coffee Co. For a break from Italian food, follow the crowd to Billy Tse’s for Chinese.
