History Events in Boston’s North End This Week

On Thursday, 22 April, at 10:00 A.M. a new Freedom Trail map will be unveiled in Boston’s North End at the corner of Hanover and Cross Streets. This event appears to be sponsored by the nearby Citizens Bank, and there will be a reception afterward. I’m guessing that this new map is part of the ongoing shift in the neighborhood after the removal of the Central Artery. One might even call it a segue.

In other news from the north, the North End Historical Society has launched its website, and will host its first event on Saturday, 24 April, at 2:00: “A ‘Holy Thursday’ walk to five religious and historical locations” within the neighborhood.
