About NorthEndWaterfront.com

Established in 2009, NorthEndWaterfront.com is a community “hyperlocal” website created to share neighborhood “news and views” about the North End / Waterfront area including downtown Boston.

Neighborhood News

We hope that NorthEndWaterfront.com can “fill in the gap” left by the citywide newspapers that have cut back on community news.

This site attempts to inform and comment on the “micro-news” and “goings-on” that make living, working and visiting in our historic neighborhood so special. We focus on news from neighborhood groups, community organizations, local residents and businesses, including community meetings and neighborhood events. Find out about upcoming meetings and events on the Community Calendar.

Photos and Videos

We live in a fabled and historic neighborhood with incredibly fascinating scenes happening every day on the streets, in the parks and along the waterfront. Through photos and videos, this website shows off the amazing imagery of our urban landscape and its people.

Photos are also an important part of many articles to add a visual element and documentation of meetings and events. See our latest photos and videos here.

Who runs the show?

Matt Conti is the founder and editor. He has been a Boston resident since the 1990’s and is active in many volunteer community organizations. He is also a photographer at Matt Conti Photography.

Amanda Stoll is managing editor, handling day-to-day operations, post scheduling as well as some reporting. She has been a North End resident since 2015.

We have many other contributors, mostly volunteers and a few paid freelance reporters. We do not, however, represent or speak on behalf of any particular organization.


Read at your own risk! We try our best, but please understand we are offering a community service more than hardcore investigative news.  We assume no liability for harm as a result of attributed sources, comments or posts made by others.

Most posts are written by a single person and we do not have the luxury of an extensive editorial staff. If you do spot an error or typo, a nicely worded correction via our contact form is always appreciated.

Sponsors and Advertising

We have introduced sponsorships and advertising on NorthEndWaterfront.com. In 2013, we took over a North End directory website, NorthEndBoston.com, that also has advertising. Sponsors and advertisers do not have any influence over our editorial and news features.

We understand that many of our contributors have other interests and ventures that could be perceived as a conflict of interest. When it is relevant, we ask folks to disclose such relationships but cannot guarantee that conflicts do not exist.

Comments Policy

We encourage comments in accordance with our policy.
