About the Project

North End Stories

“The North End, Boston’s oldest residential area, still possesses an old-world charm kept alive mainly by its mostly Italian-American population.”


North End Stories is a digital narrative project create by Jeanne Dasaro that aims to collect, preserve, and share the stories of Italian-Americans whose families immigrated to Boston’s North End in the late 19th and early 20th century.  How has the neighborhood changed since 1900? since 1950? How have lifestyles changed? What has stayed the same? How is Italian-American culture alive today in the North End?
