Boston's West End: Bruins, Celtics, and a History of Controversy
Though not as well known as its next-door neighborhoods—the North End and Beacon Hill—Boston's West End nevertheless has an interesting history and several vibrant attractions all its own. The area once housed a large community of Italians and Jews, only to be targeted for an urban renewal project in the 1950s, possibly as political payback from the newly elected mayor. You can learn more about the area's history at the West End Museum.
Today, the neighborhood may be best known as the home of the Boston Celtics and Bruins, who play at the TD Garden. For a taste of local history, pay a visit to the former Charles Street Jail, which has been converted into a luxury hotel. The 1851 building kept some famous names behind bars, including Malcolm X, notorious Mayor James Michael Curley, and the controversially imprisoned anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti.
