Vad du kommer att göra

Most tourists know the North End neighborhood of Boston as our “Little Italy.” But this isn’t just an Italian neighborhood; it's the oldest part of the city, going back to its' founding in 1630. So this North End crime tour isn't about the mob. It's a chance to learn about a wide swath of lesser-known criminal acts that took place here over the centuries.

From the comfort of your home you'll hear stories of an early red-light district, anarchist riots and police station bombings, Colonial Boston scoundrels, pirates, and Boston's biggest bank heist.

Through video, maps, historic photographs, and drawings we'll "walk" a route that will bring these events to life. Along the way, you'll see parts of this 1 square mile neighborhood most tourists never see--even the ones who visit in person! And of course, I'll be happy to answer any questions.

You'll hopefully leave this tour with an appreciation for the rich historical and ethnic diversity of this almost 400-year-old neighborhood.

And you won't need to bring anything except your interest in true crime and history!

Hi! I'm Kurt! Over the past five years I've given hundreds of tours of Boston's oldest neighborhood, the North End. I'm a storytelling champion with the NPR program, The Moth. My background in libraries, archives, and history means you're getting a thoroughly researched tour with a goal to be historically accurate while keeping things fun. In fact, I've spent dozens of hours researching archives and databases for this virtual tour. The in-person version of my North End Crime Tour has a 5-star rating on Yelp, Google, Facebook, and TripAdvisor with over 50 reviews.

Excellent experience of Boston’s little Italy area. Professionally delivered stories of Boston that make me want to visit now! Impeccable presentation that allows for questions and optimized online platform! Highly recommend.

Kurt gives Boston a whole new perspective (even for me who has visited Boston so many times). The layout of slides beautifully align with his narrative...and boy, does he have good stories! Amazing storyteller, very entertaining and personalized experience. I highly recommend this experience to anyone (even Bostonians) who is interested in Boston.

Kurt is very knowledgeable on the topic. 1.5hrs literally flew by. My whole family stayed engaged and was very happy about the experience. We are still talking about some of the crimes. I would definitely sign up for any other tours he may offer. Thank you!

This was a great experience. I knew little about Boston and its history before joining, but Kurt told some fascinating stories from the last few hundred years. I hope to visit in the future, but in the meantime I would recommend this experience for its great storytelling!
