WHERE DO you sleep at night?

We ask this question to those who support late-night hours for bars and restaurants in the North End (“Don’t roll up the sidewalks,’’ Editorial, Sept. 30). The most vocal supporters of turning the North End into Boston’s late-night watering hole - for example, the Globe’s editorial board - often do not live in the neighborhood. Others are just passing through while they attend school. Those of us who make the North End home (and want to attract young families) appreciate its vibrant night life, but will not allow it to become the city’s next early-morning pub crawl.

Not just those of us who live in the North End, but all who live in Boston (including members of the Globe’s editorial board) should support preserving the real uniqueness of the North End, not as an entertainment destination, but as a true historic neighborhood.
