Boston’s Skinny House: Book the notoriously narrow North End number for the holidays

The infamous Skinny House at 44 Hull Street could be yours for a night or two, for the price of around $320 per night. Available for nightly rental through November, December and into 2017, the Skinny House is a 1,166-square-foot townhouse that was built out of spite after the Civil War. Curbed Boston has more details on the rental information and the history!

At Scopa, not your average North End menu

Gennario Riccio and Marisa Iocco of Scopa restaurant in the North End are hoping to bring some new flare to classic Italian cuisine. Serving more than just red sauce plates, the menu is sculpted to be, “lighter, healthier, and more modern than at many of its North End counterparts.” Read the full story and meal details at, The Boston Globe.

2. Instagram boasting: “Like Clockwork. It’s Fall. Cold. Gray”

  1. Re: 44 Hull Street:
    Is this even legal? How do you rent a house nightly for $320? Is this a rooming house? A bed and breakfast? I actually thought the owners resided here?
    What will the happen in the North End next?


    The owners do not live there. It is a vacation rental property. it is not a rooming house or a bed and breakfast. Just like airbnb, homeway and vrbo are not regulated by the city or state (yet). so yes it is legal

    1. I did not say it was right just that it is legal. As long as it is legal, the owners do have a right to rent it for whatever the market will bear. If it is a problem property I am certain that the neighbors would be complaining. This has been a vacation property for some time now. From reviews I read by people who have stayed here, it is mostly families who rent it,

      1. @ Joyce S: The reason I thought the owners lived there is because they just got an award from the Beautification Committee for keeping the area near their home clean.
        @Michael: You are 100% correct.

        Time for me to move…..Just saying!
