North Quincy Neighborhood
A neighborhood of Quincy proper, North Quincy, originally known as Billings Plain, also includes the Atlantic and Norfolk Downs neighborhoods. The largest beach of Boston Harbor, Wollaston Beach, is located in North Quincy. Under the care of the Friends of Wollaston Beach (FWB) and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), the public beach includes around 23 miles of shoreline and features a sea wall, continuous walkway, concession stands, park areas and vehicle parking. Visitors to the beach can enjoy scenic views of the Edison Power Plant in South Boston, Houghs Neck, Squantum, the HULL1 and HULL2 wind turbines, and the Boston Harbor islands of Long, Georges, Moon, Peddocks, Spectacle and the one-half-acre Hangman Island. The FWB regularly schedules events and fundraisers to support the beach. Boaters and fishers take part in several annual sailing and fishing tournaments.
Founded in 1890, the Squantum Yacht Club is located at Wollaston Beach. Created to promote sailing and boatmanship, the club is a cooperative owned by sailors and power boaters. Each July, the club hosts the Lipton Cup Regatta. Overlooking the gorgeous Quincy Bay and Boston skyline, the Squantum clubhouse features a comfortable lounge with large-screen TV and bar. Junior members can gather privately in the own separate room. The 125-person-capacity upstairs function room is an ideal venue for club events or weddings, school functions or other special events. The room features a beautiful deck that overlooks Quincy Bay and the Boston skyline. There's also a popular ground-level deck, where club members and their guests can watch the races or just relax viewing the awesome New England sunsets.
Squantum's Junior membership program is open to boys and girls from twelve to eighteen years old. Some popular Junior events include the Junior's Dinner, the island picnic and the annual Junior's Dance held on the Friday night of Quincy Bay Race Week.
A U.S. Department of Homeland Security wind and weather station is located at Squantum. In addition, the Quincy Police Department and U.S. Coast Guard use Squantum and its floats to access the shore in the event of emergencies.
North Quincy was originally marshland drained by the Neponset River. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is one of the neighborhood's major employers.
Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003, Quincy Shore Drive is one of many historic parkways constructed to provide access to Boston's beaches and parks. The four-mile road was built between 1903 and 1907 and opened to the public in 1908. The parkway's northernmost point intersects Massachusetts Route 3A, or Hancock Street, and reaches its southernmost point at Sea Street. Between these points, the road follows the shore, then runs through residential areas and Wollaston Beach Reservation city park.
Located on East Squantum Street between Hancock Street and Newport Avenue, the North Quincy MBTA Station features 1,192 parking spaces, 26 of which are handicapped accessible, as are the elevator and escalator. There are also 43 bicycle spaces.
Residents of the North Quincy area have a wide range of eateries from which to choose to satisfy their hunger. Located on Billings Road, one such popular spot is Balducci's House of Pizza, who feature fresh, affordable Italian cuisine. Their hand-tossed pizzas include the finest grande cheese and extra-virgin olive oil and are available in traditional, classic, specialty or fresh white pizzas minus the tomato sauce.
Also featuring fine grande cheese, Balducci's calzones make the pizza-eating experience easy and include choices from classic to the customized "create-your-own" options.
Over a quarter century of experience creating Italian dinners has made Balducci's a popular eating spot in North Quincy. Ranging from traditional pasta to chicken dishes, all dinners include bread and butter or a side of garlic bread.
Maybe you'd prefer a hearty Italian sandwich. Balducci's serves hot or cold subs, specialty wraps and such classic sandwiches as grilled cheese and quarter-pound cheeseburgers. Both the cheeseburger basket and club sandwich come with a bonus serving of French fries.
To top off your meal at Balducci's, you can delight yourself in such popular mouth-watering desserts as key lime or Boston crème pie or a chocolate mousse cup.
