Shopping

Little Italy is home to a variety of small shops and boutiques. Head to Mulberry Street for clothing and accessory stores, such as Accessories by Regali, Bella Mimo Gifts, Go Go Jewelry, Regal Handbags and Step Up Boutique. Locals love New and Almost New, a vintage consignment shop. The inventory provides modern options found at high-end boutiques at a fraction of the cost. When looking for some authentic pasta and Italian food to cook up at home, Grand Street is the place to go. Alleva Dairy, Di Palo's Fine Foods and Piemonte Ravioli Co. offer shoppers everything from pasta, homemade sauce, and Italian meats to cheeses, fresh produce and pastries. Deluxe Food Market in Chinatown boasts a wide selection of Asian groceries and prepared foods at reasonable prices. Head there if you're in the mood for some bubble tea, or you have a craving for roast pork with hoisin sauce.

Cost

The cost of living in Little Italy is 32% greater than the New York average and 123% greater than the national average. A one-bedroom apartment runs between $3095-$4485 per month, even though apartments run on the small side. People who dwell in this neighborhood do so for the location. Gas runs approximately 11% higher than the national average. Expect to pay about $8 for a beer, depending on the bar. If city life full of pedestrian traffic, excellent restaurants and nightlife suits you, then this area will not disappoint.

Transportation

New York is a huge city, but getting around town proves easy when utilizing the wide assortment of public transportation. Subways, buses and cabs rank as the most popular choices among commuters. If you're in a hurry or want to avoid crowded subway platforms, hailing a cab is as simple as walking to the curb — but costs more than the subway. The subway takes longer than a cab, but is far less expensive to areas like Times Square. Uber also runs in this section of Manhattan.

Eco-minded people can have a go at getting around New York City by bicycle or by foot. Sidewalks run along every street and bike paths surround the area. If you prefer to drive, be advised that street parking and public parking lots often require fees.

Parks

Although you will have to venture out of the immediate neighborhood to find a park, Little Italy does put on several annual feasts and festivals throughout the year. Held in September each year, the San Gennaro Feast serves up ethnic foods like bracciole, sausage and peppers, cannoli, zeppole, torrone and gelato. Try the fried Oreos for a sweet treat. The entire family is sure to delight in the wide variety of entertainment. Live music, games for kids, face painting and contests make this tradition in Little Italy a worthwhile event for all to enjoy.

Restaurants

While walking along cobblestone streets beneath the fire escapes of historical apartment buildings, patrons of Little Italy enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of Italian cuisine and culture embodied in the neighborhood's restaurants.

Amici II, a local favorite often found packed with residents, serves as a fantastic choice for lunch and dinner. The menu has something for everybody, from fresh lobster pulled from a live lobster tank to "Mamma's" specials — created by chefs known for their creative combinations of spices and sauces. In addition to the Italian cuisine, Amici II provides a charming atmosphere and top-notch service for any occasion.

Located in the heart of Little Italy is a unique Italian Cafe called Cha Cha's In Bocca Al Lupo Cafe. Experience an outdoor cafe and vast selection of Italian pastries and deserts, along with plenty of lunch and dinner options. Guests often find the owner himself, John Ciarcia, known as "Cha Cha," making his rounds to tables and making sure everything is perfect. Danny De Vito, Michael Douglas and Leonardo DiCaprio have dined at this establishment.

Conveniently located on Mulberry Street, Casa Bella Italian Ristorante has been in operation since 1979. Three dining rooms, a large bar and al fresco seating for up to 80 people from May through October welcome diners with vibrant tables, singing, music and authentic Italian food. Try the chicken parmigiana, which consists of moist chicken, a crispy crust and mozzarella cheese, all coated with a sweet, chunky tomato sauce.

Nightlife booms in the Little Italy vicinity. One local staple to check out is 169 Bar, located at 169 East Broadway. Throughout its 80-year history, this "dive" bar has remained a satisfying place to drink a $3 beer, shoot some pool and dance to the sounds of DJs who spin new-wave beats. The band Triple 5 Soul frequently plays here, and the cover charge only sets guests back $5 on those nights. Mulberry Street Bar, GoldBar and Onieal's serve as a few favorites among locals and visitors. Experience the vibe of 1920s speakeasies at these historic establishments.

History

During the 1920s, Little Italy, the downtown neighborhood comprised of parts of Chinatown, Soho and Greenwich Village, became home to more than 390,000 residents. Most of the inhabitants were of Italian descent at that time, due to the influx of Italians via Ellis Island, and the narrow streets were filled with Italian flags and shops specializing in Italian goods. Things have changed over the years, as Italians who achieved financial prosperity moved on to more spacious neighborhoods in places like Queens and Brooklyn. Although the Italian demographic still represents the area well, Little Italy consists of a mix of people. Much of the neighborhood has been absorbed by Chinatown, though local restaurant owners continue to keep the Italian spirit alive for its locals and visitors.
