NYC is famous for many things. World class dining, shopping, Broadway but most of all its culture. Home to nationalities of all types, New York City boasts the very best of the world all in one location. Out of all of these, one stands out among the rest. This location is known as Little Italy, which is located in lower Manhattan. This worldly neighborhood truly takes you back in time and to another continent all at the same time. You can experience old-school Italian cuisine and style unlike anywhere outside of Naples as well as shopping and fun for all ages. The best part is: it’s a short trip from Times Square but you’ll easily spend all afternoon there.
You can choose dining opportunities such as Da Nico but you’d better bring your appetite since this is old world Italian dining and nobody leaves unsatisfied. Many a Yankee and Rudolph Guiliani have found this to be a local and tourist favorite. You can go shopping for tourist and other cool items such as Italian ceramics and even food products found nowhere else nearly anywhere along the streets and feel just like you were in Florence in summertime.
