Geschichte von Little Italy?
Hi, hat irgendwer irgendwo Infos zu Little Italy, was die Geschichte betrifft und wie sich das ganze entwickelt hat? (Also in New York) Ich werde da nicht wirklich fündig :/
Danke im voraus :)
Little Italy is the pocket-neighborhood reminder of the great wave of Italian immigration which came through New York City starting in the late 1870s. This was the home of a densely packed, lively neighborhood of pushcarts, cheese shops, barber shops and organ grinders, populated by thousands of new immigrants in dilapidated old tenements.
The area has some of New York’s oldest still-operating shops, from Ferrara Bakery to Di Palo’s. But there’s also a dark side to this neighborhood, memories of extortion plots by the Black Hand and a perpetual presence of organized crime.
The present-day Little Italy is completely charming but constantly shrinking.
