BOSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The second year of Boston's expanded outdoor dining program will end on December 1, but for one city neighborhood it will end a month earlier.

The North End arguably draws more outdoor dining than anywhere else in Boston.

"We're all kind of asking the same question, we don't understand why," said Albie who drives a produce truck around Boston.

In just two weeks, the narrow streets of the North End will be a little less crowded with outdoor dining tables gone for the rest of the season.

The City of Boston told the Boston Globe the early closure had to do with construction, density, and parking.

Frank Pasquale owns some of the most popular restaurants on Hanover Street and says he hopes the pilot program is brought back for a third year.

However, some North End residents disagree. One man told WBZ NewsRadio that when the roads open up, he's going to celebrate.

"If you live here, I bet people move away, its been terrible, you can't have a kid around here anymore or your car," said the North End resident.
