Little Italy is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York. The area has long been home to New York’s Italian population but today the number of Italians still living there is really small. Also Chinatown has shrunk the neighborhood into the size of barely three blocks - before it was 50 blocks.
We visited Little Italy on our first whole day in New York. Our sightseeing tour included a lunch there so it was a great opportunity to get to know the area better. At first sight there I noticed the typical Italian flags decorating the streets and the Italian restaurants and coffee shops. It totally gave me a feeling that I was in Italy. We didn’t have much time to spend there but it was truly a great experience!
