  Little Italy
by seagoingJLW

Favorite thing: Here the streets are narrow and some are cobblestoned. The tenement buildings here are from the turn of the century (i.e. from the 1800's to the 1900's.)

Little Italy is located in lower Manhattan right next to Chinatown. In fact in some places they intermingle. Sights, sounds and smells of Italian cuisine and culture emanate from the buildings, stores and restaurants as you stroll along the streets.

Fondest memory: During the Feast of San Gennaro in Septembe, more than 3 million people come here for the celebration. It is held along Mulberry Street between Canal and Houston Streets.

People come to eat. And they eat sausage sandwiches.

And they play lots of games like Dunk the Clown.
