This past Saturday, May 19th, the Friends of the North End Branch Library held a fundraiser to benefit Library programs. Books and DVDs donated by locals and other patrons of the Library were sold at the entrance to the building and along the sidewalks of Parmenter Street, and with ample foot traffic, the event was a resounding success.
Neighborhood events such as this are just part of the sense of community that makes the North End and Waterfront such great places to call home. To find out more about the area and the North End condos available now, contact the local experts at CL Waterfront Properties today.
The 18th annual Taste of the North End food festival, held Friday, May 4, at the Steriti Rink on Commercial Street, was by all accounts a resounding success. Over 500 hungry visitors enjoyed cuisine from more than 35 North End eateries, showcasing myriad appetizers, cheese plates, main courses, and desserts – not to mention ample libations from local wine and beer vendors. There was also a silent auction featuring hotel and restaurant packages, tickets to Boston sporting events, and North End memorabilia.
Started in 1993 by Donato Frattaroli, Taste of the North End brings a feast of world famous North End cuisine – all donated by our generous neighboring restaurants – to the masses. Proceeds benefit North End Waterfront Health as well as other local charities for children and seniors.

We always love to hear from satisfied clients – this glowing reference came from a recent sale in the North End:
“4/17/2012 – We owned a high end condo in the North End with a very unique 2000 sq. ft. outdoor deck. Because it was so unique, Carmela and her staff did everything possible to make certain it sold. Their approach was always professional, creative, timely, gracious and helpful.
They provided input on removing personal items, staging if need be, lighting, high quality photographers at the time of the day when the deck looked its best ( even if it meant 2 or 3 shootings), were candid in their assessment of value compared to the real estate market; answered and returned phone calls within minutes (even on weekends); made certian the unit was opened and closed properly before and after showings: sought advertising by having write-ups in the Wall Street Journal, Boston Home, Boston Globe; provided links on the web site to TV shows and magazines in which our home was featured; made suggestions on details that should or should not be addressed and generally were very very service oriented and customer oriented. I would use Carmela Laurella again in a heart beat.

Reynolds’ talk will focus on Dallin’s 58 year quest to erect his Paul Revere sculpture in Boston.

Boston Gliders is open 7 days a week in rain, sleet, or snow. Tourists never stop and neither does the company. Now in its 3rd location, the segways are taking over the city. Soon enough, we all are going to be using them to go to work or to the local store. Please visit their website for more information: www.Bostongliders.com.
