Little Italy

Rate this item
(0 votes)

In its beginnings, Little Italy was the New York destination point for many Italian immigrants. The area was extremely poor so arriving immigrants moved out rather quickly. The heart of Little Italy is Mulberry Street which as at least 50 well priced restaurants. The hugely popular Feast of San Gennaro which begins the first Thursday after Labor Day and lasts for 10 days is a city favorite wherein Mulberry Street is transformed into fairgrounds filled with rides, games, music and great food.

Today, the area is defined by restaurants and cafés catering to tourists, covering a dense neighborhood of tenements shared by recent Chinese immigrants, young Americans who can’t afford Soho and a few remaining real live Italians." There is still a real old fashioned vibe of Italy in the area but less than 1,000 Italian-Americans live here now as Chinatown has expanded into the neighborhood.

After the September 11 attacks, Little Italy was cut off for the rest of 2001 and suffered economic loss for some time.

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
