Established in 2009, NorthEndWaterfront.com is a community “hyperlocal” website created to share local neighborhood “news and views” about the North End and Waterfront area of Boston, Massachusetts. The original idea for this website was to report on community meetings and events in the neighborhood with the goal of increasing awareness and encouraging community participation. In brief, we are a community bulletin board (with awesome photos)!
Keep up to date and sign-up for the email newsletter to receive a nifty digest of new posts.
This site attempts to inform and comment on the “micro-news” and “goings on” that make living in our unique and historic neighborhood so special. Information from various neighborhood groups, community organizations, local residents and businesses is most welcome. A list of upcoming meetings and events is listed on the Calendar.
This is a community blog, more than an investigative news site, but we hope that NorthEndWaterfront.com can fill some of the gap left by the major newspapers that have cut back on nearly all neighborhood reporting.
Views via Commentary
We welcome contributions and opinions from the community. Discussion is encouraged through the comments section. Even better, feel free to submit your own commentary for publication to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As is the nature of blogs, we occasionally share our ‘views’ or two cents on various issues where we can add perspective. We do not feel the need remark on everything, but you will notice editorial comments here and there.
Views via Photos and Videos
We live in a fabled and historic neighborhood with incredibly fascinating colonial streets, parks, plazas, statues, buildings and a picturesque waterfront. Through photos and videos, this website will show off these amazing scenes. Photos are also an important part of many articles to add a visual element of the meeting or event.

Who are we?
My name is Matt Conti and I am the founder and editor of NorthEndWaterfront.com. I have lived in the North End/Waterfront area for nearly all of the past 18 years (I left briefly, missed the neighborhood and moved back). I attend many community meetings and am involved in several neighborhood groups, although I do not represent or speak on behalf of any particular organization. This is a part-time, hobby-like project for me.
Conor Finley is our regular, part time community blogger. He is also a Suffolk University student and North End resident.
