Sam Viscione

Sam Viscione was born in Boston and raised on Sheafe St. in the Copps Hill section of the North End. He attended Boston schools and had a successful career as a banker for what is now the Bank of America. Email Sam.

Sam says, “His love for the North End is not so much rooted in it’s location or it’s historical significance but in it’s people. The people were the North End. These immigrant Italians who struggled with ignorance and prejudice, living in a poor housing density, raised children like myself with pride and love. We all were bred the same, cared and understood each other and to this day, share everlasting memories and enduring friendships.”
