A taste of Italy in the middle of Boston, North End is the city's oldest continuously inhabited residential community, originally settled in the 1630s. Home to a sizable Italian-American population, this relatively small neighborhood boasts nearly a hundred Italian eateries and historical buildings, including Paul Revere's house. Often called "Little Italy," the area covering roughly five city blocks attracts visitors with its narrow streets lined with restaurants, cafes, bars, bakeries, and shops selling imported goods. Though Italian culture continues to dominate this part of the city, other ethnic groups also have left a mark on the neighborhood, among them Russians, Jews, and the Irish.
