North End History – The Italians

Guild Nichols, “North End History – The Italians,” 2020. From the site: “The Italian masses that flowed into the North End on the heels of the departing Irish and at the apex of the Jewish settlement found a neighborhood in dire physical condition; a rundown, overcrowded slum of deteriorating tenement buildings. Like their predecessors, these newly-arrived Italian immigrants also had to contend with Bostonians’ disdain for foreigners.”
