Boston - West End & North End (Chapter)
This is the West End & North End chapter from Lonely Planet's Boston guidebook.
While physically adjacent, the West End and North End are atmospherically worlds apart. The West End is an institutional area without much zest. By contrast, the North End is delightfully spicy, thanks to the many Italian ristoranti and salumeria that line the streets.
