Charlestown is home to the city’s narrowest house.
A mix of yuppie and upper middle class have influenced much of the area, but Charlestown still maintains a strong Irish American population and “townie” identity. It has a terrific mix of no-name dives, mid-level spots, and a few choice fine dining spots. Come summer, waterfront day drinking is the order of the weekend.
