With a great location near Boston Harbor and a landscape reminiscent of Beacon Hill, Charlestown’s streets are paved in cobblestone, lit by gas lanterns and boast several of the City’s most historic sites. Paul Revere frequented the local Warren Tavern and started his famous midnight ride here and the Bunker Hill Monument, where colonial troops were warned not to fire until they saw the whites of British eyes. Charlestown is also home to the historic Boston Navy Yard where USS Constitution, the world's oldest commissioned warship still afloat, and the museum ship, USS Cassin Young are both docked. The neighborhood offers an abundance of waterfront condos, classic colonial, redbrick row houses, and no shortage of local lore. Residents also enjoy many top-rated restaurants and a variety of shops along Main Street and City Square.
