Hundreds of people turned out for the North End Community Celebration of the placement of the Paul Revere Statue, its sculptor Cyrus Dallin and the historical park the community has labeled the “Prado”.

The idea of this neighborhood and historical event started with a suggestion by David Kubiak and members of the NEWRA Parks and Open Spaces Committee and it was eventually embraced by the committee, NEWRA and many other historical and neighborhood agencies.
