The new year often brings new motivation for some, for others it brings second chances and hope. See how well a survivor of the Boston Marathon is doing, her progress and upcoming plans for this year. Read about our own Copp’s Hill in the Mayor’s speech and hear about the future of the Waterfront. 

North End’s Copp’s Hill Part of Mayor Marty Walsh’s Inauguration Speech

North Enders tweeted out when Mayor Marty Walsh included Copp’s Hill in the now famous list of hills during his inauguration speech.

Boston has been called, a “City upon a Hill.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone use that phrase to make a lofty point. But let me tell you what I think about when I hear it, with apologies to John Winthrop, the Puritan settler who said it first. We are a City Upon a Hill, but it’s not just the shining light of Beacon Hill. It’s Savin Hill, where I live. It’s Bunker Hill, Bellevue Hill and Fort Hill. It’s Pope’s Hill, Jones Hill, and Telegraph Hill. It’s Copp’s Hill, Mission Hill and Eagle Hill. So when I say we are sworn in together, it means we’re in this together. We are in this together—every neighborhood.

  1. Just think its sad that the people whom parents and grandparents grew up together;talk about the definition of community,wow. Those folks,have to move out to the boondocks,alone, in order to keep a roof over thier head or heads. That also includes charlestown,the south end and s.boston. Nobody seems to understand the implications of that fact.

  2. I continue to be amazed and inspired by Roseann. Letting us into her life in recovery from this disaster allows us to gain a level of understanding, of what all survivors are dealing with, that we could never hope to achieve otherwise. I am grateful for her generosity in sharing and look forward to future updates on her progress.
