Boston is the #2 city for trick-or-treating and within the city, the North End ranks #5 as a top neighborhood. Basically, the kids in the downtown neighborhoods make a killing!
That is the result from the 2012 Zillow Trick-or-Treat Index. This is the second year in a row that Boston has placed after San Francisco. The housing-related index is designed to represent cities and neighborhoods with the likelihood of best candy and the least walking and safety risks using published statistical data.
Within Boston, the North End neighborhood ranked #5 among the best areas for trick-or-treating, down from #3 last year. Beacon Hill took the top spot followed by West Roxbury, Charlestown and Back Bay.
