Little Italy

Great food Fun nightlife

Little Italy is much more than a string of Italian restaurants. Throughout the years, it has developed into a culturally diverse neighborhood with a variety of businesses and shopping opportunities.

Little Italy’s close proximity to SoHo, The Bowery, and Chinatown put it on the more expensive side of NYC neighborhoods, but the primo location and iconic character make it an exemplary option for the Manhattan apartment hunter.
