Neighborhood Description

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.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Little Italy was home to some of the city's poorest Italian residents. At that time, over 90% of the neighborhood's residents were Italian. More diverse demographics appeared after World War II. Today, the neighborhood is no longer completely Italian in the traditional sense. In fact, the neighborhood is slowly becoming incorporated into Chinatown. A majority of the top-rated eating establishments in the area are now Chinese restaurants around Asian fusion cafés. Even the famed “Italian Food Center” sells sushi. These facts are indicative of the growing Chinese population in the surrounding areas.

Little Italy is small in size, but there are plenty of attractions to entertain visitors and residents alike. Many may remember Little Italy solely as the home of the Corleone family in The Godfather trilogy, but there is plenty to like about Little Italy beyond the mafia ties. In terms of both Chinese and Italian cuisine, it's tough to beat. Di Palo's is a highly acclaimed shop that sells cheeses and meats, with a wine store conveniently located next door. For Asian cuisine, the New Kam Hing Coffee Shop and Vietnamese sandwich shop Banh Mi Saigon should not be missed. These are in addition to the wide stretch of Italian eateries in the area.

Although some disagree about its actual borders, Little Italy is usually believed to extend as far north as Kenmare Street, as far east as Bowery, as far south as Canal Street, and as far west as Lafayette. Essentially, Little Italy's primary attractions run throughout Mulberry Street, south of West Houston Street and directly north of Canal Street.

Like many neighborhoods in Manhattan’s populated areas, Little Italy is easy to access via subway and bus. The 6, N, Q, and J lines run on Canal Street, while the J line runs through the nearby Bowery stop. The B and D lines are at Grand Street just south of Bowery. Buses are not as frequent, but one can take the M103 bus on Lexington down to Grand Street and walk a few blocks. New Jersey residents can also access Little Italy by taking the PATH train to 14th street and transferring to the F subway downtown.
