JP’s Salmagundi Expands to North End

Occasionally Jamaica Plain News leaves the neighborhood and Wednesday we ended up in the North
End...only to discover a bit of Jamaica Plain: Salmagundi for Ladies and Gents at 61 Salem St. Long a fixture at 765 Centre Street, Salmagundi opened on Salem Street in the fall of 2014. Co-owner Jessen Fitzpatrick  was on duty and he told Jamaica Plain News that "we officially moved in August but it took us a while to get the same vibe at this new location that we have in JP. We rotate the sales staff from JP to keep that vibe too," like Rachel Buffer, whom the Jamaica Plain News chatted with at the flagship Centre Street shop. The store is in a perfect location on the edge of the North End, a few steps from the Greenway and a straight line from the bustling new Boston Public Market (a must see!) and the Haymarket Orange Line station; but even more than that it's located next to Lulu's Ice Cream. (almost as good as JP Licks)


Stabbing Suspect From JP Held Down Until Cops Arrive

Police say a man cut during a fight in the North End subdued the Jamaica Plain man who allegedly stabbed him. Police arrested John Driscoll, 29, of JP after police say he stabbed a 25-year-old Waltham man, according to the Boston Herald. The victim's wounds aren't life threatening, reports NECN. Driscoll himself suffered minor injuries in the incident. The stabbing took place just after midnight on Sunday at Hanover and Blackstone streets, reports Fox 25. Universal Hub has a photo from the crime scene.
