Boston is the capital of Massachusetts and New England’s largest city. It boasts one of the finest natural harbors in the United States, and it is New England’s most important seaport. Boston is a collection of smaller neighborhoods, each with its own distinct flavor. The Waterfront, replete with glitzy loft condos with slips for private yachts runs into the North End, Boston’s Little Italy where the aromas of Italian cuisine drift out into the streets from the many Gourmet restaurants and private homes. The North End runs into what used to be the West End on the back side of Beacon Hill. In the Sixties, Urban renewal saw the destruction of this neighborhood and saw it replaced with Condominium towers and Government Center, the present location of Boston City Hall.
