Little Italy Real Estate DeFalco RealtyLittle Italy is a neighborhood of New York City located in lower Manhattan, bounded by Tribeca to the west, Chinatown to the south, the Lower East Side to the east, and Nolita to the north. In the 1880s, large populations of immigrants from Naples and Sicily moved into the area, creating a neighborhood with vibrant Italian culture, vestiges of which remain to this day. Though the area was once expansive, today the neighborhood consists of only a few blocks along Mulberry Street.

Though recent surges of new boutiques, cafes, and bars have changed the old-world feel of Little Italy, there are still a number of historic businesses and restaurants to check out –most notably Angelo’s or Puglia’s, which has been around since 1919. The area is a great respite

"Matter of fact, we're thinking of turning the whole house off for about a month. Live sort of a carefree one-for-all existence."

"That sounds dreadful! Would I have to tie my own shoes instead of letting the shoe tier do it? And brush my own teeth and comb my hair and give myself a bath?"
