All Signs Point To Little Italy - Boston

Boston's North End has seen a succession of immigrants over the years. The most recent influx of immigrants to call the old North End home were Italians so today the area is known as Little Italy.
Having been to Italy and arriving during a feast day celebration, I had to check out Little Italy for myself and try the gelato, figuring it would be pretty accurate!
When I spotted this fun street sign, I had to stop for a photo. I loved that some of the place names it pointed to in far-away Italy were places I had been! The rest places I dreamed of seeing!
I loved the connection between the immigrant neighborhood in Boston and their home-land that was conveyed through the sign. It reminds you how much the US is an immigrant land and how proud so many are of their heritage.
