The Greenway was a labor of love and has become a focal point of many in the city. a plus is the charging stations located along the Greenway.

Thie Greenway honors Rose Kennedy, and replaces a surface highway which is now underground. There are many kinds of art along the way, including some above you (in good weather). Vegetable and flower gardens are everywhere. Seating is easy to find. The Greenway begins near Government Center and North Stationand runs all the way into Chnatown and South Station, so... More

Did not know about this while planning our trip to Boston, so were pleasantly surprised as we made our way along the Freedom Trail. The day we were there we walked through a "farmer's market" that displayed jewelry, crafts, etc. There was also a couple of art exhibits -- one was larger than life depictions of the Chinese calendar --...

I am very sad that the Greenway removed the Chinese Zodiac sculptures that were by the Aquarium. They were wonderful. Hopefully it was just for the winter but who knows, maybe there will be some new art going up in the spring. In any event I wonder where they went.

If your staying in the No.end it's a great walk to China town from there. Or at long Wharf hotel. Walk to China town go eat at China pearl for dim sum then walk to Boston common and go skating At frog pond.

I love this place. It is filled with local plants, nice colorful flowers in the summer, and the art exhibitions are very diverse and great.

Linger if you want or walk through. Good place to "chill", bring a blanket and relax. Fun for kids to run through the fountains.

Filling a corridor that used to occupy the elevated highway, walking this green space is a pleasant way to get from South Station to the North End. Although it is quite long and narrow, the shrubs are planted in such a way that you can sometimes forget that you are walking in the center of Atlantic Avenue. Strategically placed benches... More

This green walkway is a lovely place to walk, enjoy a nice day, and people-watch. It's also near the water, so you can enjoy views of the water and the city simultaneously. It's near the Faneuil Marketplace, so you can walk off the good food you just ate.

I still remember this area with the ugly elevated highway known as the "central artery." Every time o pass through I am so glad the planners of "the big dig" included all this green space over the tunnel instead of allowing buildings. Walking from the Quincy Market area up to the North End is now a very pleasant stroll!

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
