Shrewsbury Street

The Flying Rhino

Four friends pose for a picture on their way to The Flying Rhino, one of the many restaurants and bars on Shrewsbury Street. For those of you with a Chicago connection, Shrewsbury Street is probably the closest thing to the Lincoln Park nightlife that Worcester has. Recent improvements to the landscaping on the center of the road also makes this one of Worcester’s most promising areas of renewal.

    This was and still is the typical Italian neighborhood. There are some Italian parades and festivals through out the year. It has many Italian restaurants and a couple Diner Car Restaurants. Also, coming up is the July 4th Fireworks at Cristoforo Columbo Park.

    From http://columbus.vanderkrogt.net/us_ne/worcester_ma.html :

    “A few years earlier, in 1977, a park on Shrewsbury Avenue [in Worcester, MA] was named Cristoforo Colombo Park. A plaque says: “The Italo Americans of Worcester, with the approval of the city council and the park commission, renamed this park on Sept. 27, 1977, to honor the great Italian navigator.””
