Event description

Description

Between 1880-1924, over 4 million Italians immigrated to the United States in search of a better life. Many settled in the neighborhood in downtown Manhattan eventually dubbed Little Italy, where Italian-Americans began to establish a unique culture and ethos that mixed the traditions of the old country with the ebbs and flows of their new home.

This two hour walking tour will visit the churches, restaurants, and infamous locales that cultivated the neighborhood's vivacious character and attitude--an attitude and way of life that, from caprese to cannolis, is still honored and celebrated today!
