Beverly and its overwhelming Irish pride are synonymous, at least to the people that are familiar with the area. The Southside Irish Parade, the Irish bars that line the west side of Western, the replica Irish castle (that is featured in the logo), the Irish last names...it's almost inescapable. Hell, St. Patrick's day is practically a holiday in Beverly, and residents aren't afraid to admit it.
But this neighborhood isn't just shamrocks and leprechauns. I spent the first 22 years of my life as a resident of this beautiful "Village in the City." Tree-lined streets, Top Notch Beefburgers, tons of parks, Rainbow Cone, summer baseball and soccer leagues, Janson's... Beverly was definitely a great place for this kid to grow up.
