The area devoted to residences at the present time is nearly identical with that described by the original shore line. Although this area has been greatly extended by filling, thus allowing for the expansion of the residential district for a time, the boundaries of the housing section have been in recent years, and continue to be to a pertain extent, forced back by the encroachment of commercial interests. How far this will continue cannot be deter mined, but the character of occupancy of the district at the present time, and the rate of change in the last half century, do not suggest any very material changes in the near future.
Originally the North End was a peninsula, but with the construction of the canal through the Neck, following the line of Blackstone street, an island was formed of about 6331, acres. With the filling in of the canal and ?ats, this area was increased to practically 100 acres, of which nearly 70 acres are devoted to residential purposes. The remainder, on the south and east Sides of the district, adjacent to the market and the business sections, especially along Fulton street, is largely devoted to industries and has never been used for residential purposes.
