Where you’ll be

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

East Boston is one of the most intriguing neighborhoods around downtown Boston. Established in the 1800's by Irish, Jewish, and Italian immigrants, it lost some of its early charm but then about a decade ago, began experiencing a revival. Now it's one of the hottest emerging neighborhoods in Boston. President John F. Kennedy's Irish forefathers got their start in East Boston:

"President Kennedy addressing the people of New Ross, Ireland, June 1963: —

'When my great grandfather left here to become a cooper in East Boston, he carried nothing with him except two things: a strong religious faith and a strong desire for liberty. I am glad to say that all of his great grandchildren have valued that inheritance.'

The Kennedy Family lived on Meridian Street in what is now a small home wedged between a Hispanic market and hardware store, approaching the Meridian Street branch of the Boston Public Library. The family later moved to a larger home on Monmouth Street. P. J. Kennedy's success enabled him to purchase a home for his son, Joseph, and another for his two daughters at Jeffries Point.

In 1954, John F. Kennedy famously paraded through East Boston with his wife, Jackie, in anticipation for his campaign to run for United States Senate, to secure votes from the neighborhood. In a famous photograph, Kennedy is shown walking down Chelsea Street heading towards Maverick Square, waving to the crowd in front of Santarpio's Pizza.[9]

On numerous occasions throughout his career in the United States Senate, Senator Ted Kennedy mentioned that his family's roots are embedded in East Boston.
