City Spruces Up North End Sites in Response to Resident Requests

Here is a before and after photo update from City Hall on work recently completed in the North End by Public Works and the Parks Department. The images are courtesy of Stephen Passacantilli, Special Assistant to Mayor Martin Walsh. City Hall reminds residents to please make requests through the Mayor’s 24-hour hotline, 617-635-4500 or use the online / mobile app, Citizens Connect.

The Parks Department completed work last week on the flower beds around the Nazzaro Center and the shrubs at Polcari Playground.

The Department of Public Works filled in five additional tree pits in the North End this week. The tree pits were done to create safer sidewalk conditions. Shown above is Fleet Street. Other locations were Commercial at Prince, Commercial at Clark and 27 Charter Street. Although these tree pits were filled with concrete the City still plans to plant tree at those locations in the upcoming Fall or Spring planting seasons.

Landscaping work was recently completed at Charter Street Park.

The Italian flag wall at DeFilippo Park (the “Gassy”) was repainted.

  2. BOBBY CHURCH, YOU ARE SO RIGHT ABOUT THE HANDICAP RAMPS, THEY ARE A DISGRACE.
    THE CITY IS ON AN ALL TIME HIGH & THEY COULDN’T DO A BETTER JOB THAN THESE BLACK.
    TAR RAMPS, WHICH LOOK LIKE A CONTINUATION OF THE STREET LEADING UP TO THE.
    SIDEWALK. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY HANDICAP WHEELCHAIR PEOPLE LOOK LIKE THEY.
    ARE GOING TO FALL OF THE RAMP. AND JUST FOR THE RECORD, THERE WAS A RESTAURANT.
    IN THE NO. END THAT WAS HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE & THEY PUT THE RESTROOMS DOWN.
    THE BASEMENT, WHICH MEANS IT IS NO LONGER HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE. ASK YOURSELF
    HOW THEY GOT AWAY WITH THAT ONE. MONEY THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL,
