Charlestown is the oldest neighborhood in Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It's located north of downtown Boston on a peninsula extending southeastward between the Charles River and the Mystic River.
Charlestown contains several places of historical interest, many of which are marked by the northern end of Boston's Freedom Trail. The Freedom Trail ends at the Bunker Hill Monument commemorating the famous Battle of Bunker Hill. The USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned vessel in the US Navy, is docked in the Charlestown Navy Yard. Charlestown was also the location from which Paul Revere began his famous "midnight ride" before the Battles of Lexington and Concord. A restaurant opened in 1780 and still in operation, Warren Tavern, claims to have been one of Revere's favorite taverns. Of Charlestown's churches, St. Mary's (1887-1893) is considered one of the masterpieces of Patrick Keely.
This famous street was also filmed in the movie "The Town".
