What’s Going On in the North End / Waterfront:
Veteran’s Day is observed on Monday. We thank and honor all military personnel, especially veterans who have sacrificed for our country.
Public schools and offices are closed for the holiday.
Monday is the last family day at the USS Constitution Museum to write letters to the troops and participate in other special activities, 10am – 5pm.
Check our listing of Free Meals and Discounts for Veteran’s Day.
There are several meetings and events this week in the neighborhood. Get involved and check out the Events Calendar.
What’s new on the blog:
Two tree lightings are coming up, one right here at Hanover and Cross Streets hosted by the North End Beautification Committee on December 7th. (See the flyer.)
Next Saturday, November 17th, the big tree at Faneuil Hall goes on at 5:30 pm with a special light show this year, called “Blink.” (See the flyer.)
What people are talking about:
“Shantytown on Boston Harbor” continues to get the most comments and clicks on the website, followed by the new City Council Redistricting Map. Also, our report about NEWRA’s change in policy not to vote on new pouring liquor licenses while the North End number stands at 91 or higher has been picked up by several citywide news sources.
Notable News Found Elsewhere:
Boston Police are asking the community for help in finding a suspect in a Beacon Hill home invasion and sexual assault. See the photo at BPDNews.com.
An incredible amount of time and effort goes into editing videos, especially of the quality produced by North End Stories. Check out their latest installment with two native North Enders talking about growing up on Sheafe Street.
Neighborhood Photo of the Day:
I took this photo in the Spring when a costumed patriot was standing in front of The Memorial Garden informally known as the “Dog Tag Memorial” between the Prado and Old North Church. The memorial remembers those veterans who lost their lives in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan.
