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.

Sign up for our email newsletter to receive a nifty digest of new posts. Of course, we’re also on Facebook and Twitter if you want to follow us on social media.

Send your news & photos using our online submittal form or via email to info@northendwaterfront.com. We are always looking for bloggers and columnists so please contact us if you are interested in being a regular contributor.

Neighborhood News

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

We hope that NorthEndWaterfront.com can fill some of the gap left by the major media that have cut back on neighborhood reporting. We focus on important community meetings as well as neighborhood events.

Commentaries and Opinions

Your contributions are most welcome on NorthEndWaterfront.com! Feel free to submit your own commentary for publication using our online submittal form or to info@northendwaterfront.com.

Discussion is also encouraged through the comments section under each post in accordance with our comments policy.

All opinions are attributed solely to the individual post author and do not necessarily reflect the editors of NorthEndWaterfront.com or its other writers.

Photos and Videos

We live in a fabled and historic neighborhood with incredibly fascinating scenes happening everyday on the streets, in the parks and along the waterfront. Through photos and videos, this website will show 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?

My name is Matt Conti and I am the founder and editor of NorthEndWaterfront.com. As a longtime resident of the North End / Waterfront and downtown Boston since the early 1990’s, I am involved in several community groups and attend many meetings and events. I do not, however, represent or speak on behalf of any particular organization other than NorthEndWaterfront.com.

I am also a photographer and you can view my images at www.mattconti.com.

We have many contributors, mostly volunteers and a few paid freelance reporters. Would you like to be a regular contributor or columnist? Contact Us.


Read at your own risk! This site is NOT intended to be a comprehensive news source. This is a community blog more than an investigative news site.  Please understand that we do not have the resources of a full-time news organization. We assume no liability for harm as a result of comments or posts made by others, nor the inaccuracy of attributed sources.

This is a part-time project that we do in our spare time. The website will not always be updated and some information will be incomplete. We strive to be accurate, but the information herein should not be relied upon and we assume no liability for errors. Please also be aware that our web polls are not scientific or audited.

Most posts are written by a single person and we do not have the luxury of a dedicated editorial staff to proofread everything. If you do spot a 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.
