NorthEndWaterfront.com gives us the scoop on the decision by the Sons of Italy, which cited demographic data it says shows Revere now has a higher percentage of residents with Italian background than the North End.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
I think they are just pointing out the truth.
Next year's parade
is going to feature Yuppies and College yahoos.
The Italian immigrant
The Italian immigrant population has diminished in East Boston also, where most residents moved to Revere 25 or more years ago, most of them moved there, so they think they can impress other Italians that do not live in Revere. Now the Revere Italians have gone on to Saugus (asagussa)and if the Italian has large sums of cash laying around from some kind of malpractice lawsuit, they go on to Lynnfield(Alinnafilda)or Boxford (Boxafordo)or even Georgetown (Ah Giorgiotown) lots of land has been taken in those towns, Italians are now branching out to Middleton.
Your geography is correct. But I for one am more impressed by the neighborhood feel of the North End, East Boston, even Revere. The McMansions in soulless exurbs like Georgetown do not impress me. It's the same thing with Italian-Americans in NJ, the ones with money live in far flung suburbs like Franklin Lakes. That's how we got the Real Housewives of NJ. I'm not impressed!
It's a nice town with a good community feel with mostly older farmhouses and colonial houses. Not going to knock Revere or the North End living either but I think you might have no clue what you're talking about to call Georgetown a soulless exurb.
