What’s Going On Friday, September 14, 2012:

The Events Calendar has all the details on upcoming events.

What’s new on the blog:

It’s not often you get a title like this, “Take the Knife, Leave the Cannoli,” let alone from the D.A.’s office. It’s a classic.

NEWRA had its monthly meeting on Thursday night, supporting three business requests. See the votes.

Under the radar, but worth viewing:

The Sierra Club came out in favor of the “North End Ten” regarding the pending Long Wharf legal case. See the brief.

Notable News Found Elsewhere:

Janet Gilardi, lifelong North End resident, is profiled by Susan Danseyar at Patch. Check it out. We missed this earlier, but State Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, was interviewed by Susan too … Here it is.

Featured:

The historic North End sites, Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, received $100,000 grants from the Freedom Trail Foundation, spurring major renovation projects. See the news.

Neighborhood Photo of the Day:

The City of Boston Archives highlighted this 1948 Hanover St. photo yesterday, asking on Twitter whether any of the stores were still there. Many of the buildings appear the same and Caffe Vittoria is shown on the right in the picture. @MrBrownsFrown tweeted “the double parking is still the same.”

  1. Matt,
    Thanks for those really wonderful pieces on The Old North Church and Coops Hill. I look forward to seeing the facelifts, to these two treasures. How lucky are we to have them in our backyard.
