Ward 13: Federal Hill and the West End

Centrally located, just West of downtown, and up the hill from I-95. This ward includes all of Federal Hill and portions of the West End. Federal Hill received its name in 1788 to commemorate the ratification of the Constitution by 9 of the 13 states. It has long been the home of a large Italian American community and is renowned for the restaurants that line its main thoroughfare, Atwells Avenue. Tourist and locales alike flock to eat in the many excellent restaurants found here, or to listen to music in DePasquale Square in the Summer. Along with the many attractions on Broadway Street and Westminster Street, the entire ward has become one of the more popular areas to sample great food in the City. And every September, the Federal Hill Commerce Association throws the annual Columbus Day Parade.
