Little Italy in New York

From Canal Street in what I would call Chinatown there is a hanging sign for LIttle Italy.  They must be trying to lure people over from Chinatown.

We saved some tummy room for dessert in Little Italy after our lunch in Chinatown.  I really wanted to try the ice cream shop in Chinatown but Daughter wanted to go to Italy for dessert.

Little Italy was much smaller than Chinatown and I would say it was 80% restaurants.

We had gelato and a raspberry ice at Cafe Roma.

This sign was on the other end of Little Italy and it seemed to fit better here.

And passed this interesting car park as we walked back to the train.  How the heck do they get the cars in and out????

If we are back in the area again I would skip Little Italy. There really was not much to do in the area but eat.

    Little Italy used to be much larger, centering on Mulberry Street, where the sign is. But over the last 20 or more years, Chinatown expanded and took over much of what used to be considered Little Italy.
