Little italy

New York, and by extension, the United States, has been populated by large waves of immigration. For a time, there were many Italians in the city. So many, that they ruled their own neighborhood and filled it with their customs and restaurants. Today, the emerging Chinese community has virtually disintegrated it, but there is still a street of Italian restaurants. A must visit if you are a tourist.

Italy small

Do not know if I consider myself a purist travel, but when I visited Little Italy hoping to find a larger, purer, what style throughout my life seen in the movies section. What I saw was a couple of blocks of houses, some decaffeinated which suggested that those who lived there were no longer those descendants of Italian immigrants who were trickling in seas or along the centuries. Martin Scorsese created an imaginary in me that was not what I saw. He did not reflect the exodus during the second half of the twentieth century made the most of its residents moved to Brooklyn, or the birth of Nolita (North of Little Italy), where mushrooms have emerged as fashion shops, bakeries and restaurants film sets that seem nostalgic for those who have tasted Italian flavor in series and movies. So there are very few places and cultural traditions, ethnic and historical character of Little Italy is becoming increasingly blurred memory. The neighborhood is really tiny, absorbed by the ever-growing Chinatown. Still survive typical restaurants and trattorias in the windows with pictures reminiscent of old glories like Al Capone or new stars as Pope Francisco, occasional bakery where the tasty focaccia and St. Patrick's Church centennial, which was headquarters of the Archdiocese of New York until 1879 when he gave way to the Cathedral on 5th Avenue. Perhaps my view would change if the visit in September, the Feast of San Gennaro, when the streets are closed and New York Italians return to the neighborhood to march in the procession with the saint. So maybe for the next .. Maybe

La pequeña italia

No se si puedo considerarme un purista de los viajes, pero cuando visité Little Italy esperaba encontrar un barrio más grande, más puro, al estilo de lo que a lo largo de mi vida había visto en las películas.

Lo que percibí fue un par de manzanas de casas, un poco descafeinadas que daban a entender que los que vivían allí ya no eran esos descendientes de inmigrantes italianos que fueron llegando a cuentagotas o a mares a lo largo de los siglos.

Martin Scorsese creó un imaginario en mí que no era el que yo veía. Él no reflejó el éxodo que durante la segunda mitad del siglo XX hizo que la mayoría de sus residentes se trasladaran a Brooklyn, ni el nacimiento de Nolita ( Norte de Little Italy), donde como setas han ido surgiendo tiendas de moda, panaderías y restaurantes que parecen decorados de cine para aquellos nostálgicos del sabor italiano que han paladeado en series y películas.
Por eso quedan muy pocos lugares y tradiciones culturales, y el carácter étnico e histórico de Little Italy se va convirtiendo en un recuerdo cada vez más borroso.

El barrio es realmente diminuto, absorbido por el siempre creciente Chinatown.

Aún así sobreviven los típicos restaurantes y trattorías con fotografías en los escaparates que recuerdan a las viejas glorias como Al Capone o nuevas estrellas como el Papa Francisco, alguna que otra panadería donde se encuentra la sabrosa focaccia y la centenaria iglesia de San Patricio, que fue sede de la Archidiócesis de Nueva York hasta 1879 cuando cedió el puesto a la catedral de la 5ª Avenida.

Quizá mi visión cambiaría si la visitara en septiembre, en las fiestas de San Genaro, cuando las calles se cierran y los italianos de Nueva York regresan al barrio para desfilar en la procesión junto al santo.
Así que a lo mejor para la próxima..
Quizá

Little italy

I can not describe in detail Little Italy as we passed briefly while we were returning to our hotel in Chinatown. The first thing that struck me, that said, it is decorating the street. There are three colors of the Italian flag (green, white and red so) all the sauces. Even the terminals fire, fire escapes, and posts are painted three colors! Then many people will approach you near restaurants to offer you eat inside, nothing too surprising you say, except that some of these people really seem to be mafia bosses with their suit and little hat. It's pretty fun! xD We ate once in Little Italy, during our last day in New York City, it was the "Luna Ristorante" on Mulberry Street, a treat which I shall soon speak more detail in a future article.

Little italy

Je ne pourrai décrire en détail Little Italy car nous y sommes passés brièvement alors que nous retournions vers notre hôtel dans Chinatown. La première chose qui m'a marqué, cela dit, c'est la décoration de la rue. Vous trouverez les trois couleurs du drapeau italien (vert, blanc et rouge donc) à toutes les sauces. Même les bornes à incendies, les escaliers de secours, et les poteaux sont peints de ces trois couleurs !
Ensuite, beaucoup de personnes vont vous aborder à côté des restaurants pour vous proposer de manger à l'intérieur, rien de bien étonnant me direz-vous, sauf que certaines de ces personnes ont vraiment l'air d'être des parrains de la mafia avec leurs costume et leur petit chapeau. C'est plutôt amusant ! xD
Nous avons mangé qu'une fois à Little Italy, lors de notre dernier jour sur New York City, c'était au « Luna Ristorante » sur Mulberry Street, un régal dont je ne tarderai pas à parler dans un prochain article plus détaillé.

An authentic nyc neighborhood

Located near Canal Street in Lower Manhattan, this Italian neighborhood is great only a few blocks and still the old Italian families, descendant of the first Italian immigrants are still present in this area. Everything evokes the country: the flags in the streets, bars, restaurants, surnames on building bells, etc. .. Everything suggests that the U.S. is but a small Tuscan village. We feel the energy emanating from this area proud of its origins with a strong desire to live the American dream. Caution, however, the neighborhood is very touristy restaurants and rates are very high, beware

Un quartier authentique de nyc

Situé à proximité de Canal Street dans le Sud de Manhattan, ce quartier italien est grand de seulement quelques blocs et encore aujourd'hui les anciennes familles italiennes, descendant des premiers immigrés Italiens sont toujours présent dans ce quartier. Tout évoque le pays : les drapeaux dans les rues, les bars, les restaurants, les noms de famille sur les sonnettes d'immeuble,etc.. Tout laisse penser qu'on est plus aux USA mais bien dans un petit village de toscane. On ressent l'énergie qui se dégage de ce quartier fier de ses origines avec une forte envie de vivre le rêve américain. Attention, le quartier est toutefois très touristique et les tarifs des restaurants sont très élevés, prenez garde

Little italy

Increasingly small snack because over the years by the neighboring Chinatown that expands the Little Italy neighborhood propels you time a ride on two side streets, films of Scorsese, De Palma and Coppola . This area if film where kids run merrily, the mamas in their window and yell young people hang on the steps of the entrance seems to go against the time, especially when the area comes alive for a carnival which holds up national colors to boot, with delicacies and typical dishes from there to offer between two rides. A must visit place in New York.

Little italy

De plus en plus petit parce que grignoter au fil des années par le quartier chinois voisin qui s'agrandit, le quartier de Little Italy vous propulse le temps d'une balade dans deux petites rues, dans les films de Scorsese, De Palma ou Coppola. Ce quartier si cinématographique où les gamins courent gaiement, les mamas hurlent à leur fenêtre et les jeunes traînent sur les marches de l'entrée semble aller à l'encontre du temps, surtout quand le quartier s'anime pour une fête foraine qui brandit haut les couleurs du pays à la botte, avec des gourmandises et des mets typiques de là-bas à s'offrir entre deux tours de manège. Un lieu indispensable à visiter à New York.

Walking the neighborhood

Although true for Italy's definitely go to it; I must say that a "slide" in essence if I extracted in this little journey, not the greatest neighborhood of Italian immigrants in this city, is the tourist Italy in the heart of New York, its streets exude an air of quaint streets of Rome and offers a great cuisine, can be an amazing appetizer of Italy, is a short ride and a classic for every tourist's guide to New York.

Recorriendo el vecindario

Aunque para conocer la verdadera Italia hay sin duda que ir a ella; hay que decir que un "slide" de esencia si logro extraerse en éste pequeño recorrido, no es el vecindario más grande de inmigrantes italianos en ésta ciudad, es la Italia turística en pleno centro de New York, sus calles transpiran un aire de las pintorescas calles de roma y ofrece una gran oferta gastronómica, puede ser un abrebocas de la increíble Italia, es un recorrido corto y un clásico de toda guía turística de New York.

Thus the Umberto's Clamhouse (129 Mulberry Street) at Da Nico (164 Mulberry Street), excellent Italian cuisine is to see and feel! Entirely in the colors of Italy neighborhood is very lively and disorients us completely!

Ce quartier Itlalien de New York très proche du quartier chinois, propose plusieurs restaurants et pâtisseries de quoi ravir tous ceux qui comme moi sont "un peu" gourmands ! Ainsi de l'Umberto's Clamhouse (129 Mulberry Street), au Da Nico (164 Mulberry Street), une excellente cuisine italienne se fait voir et sentir ! Entièrement aux couleurs de l'Italie le quartier est très animé et nous dépayse totalement !

Pretty disappointing

When I went to Little Italy for the first time, I expected a neighborhood like Chinatown, or at least like Koreatown and instead I found a store of ravioli and ice cream, the rest were all Chinese stores and a diner with exorbitant prices (and decorations in the streets). I recommend if you go out there way to Chinatown or Soho but really not worth it by itself. The neighborhood still has a bit of charm, but the charm is that area of ​​New York.

Bastante disappointing

Cuando fui a Little Italy la primera vez, me esperaba un barrio parecido a Chinatown, o al menos parecido a Koreatown y en lugar me encontré una tienda de raviolis y una de helado, el resto eran todo tiendas chinas y un diner con unos precios desorbitados (y las decoraciones por las calles). Recomiendo pasar por ahí si de camino a Chinatown o Soho pero realmente no vale la pena por si solo. El barrio sigue teniendo un poco de encanto, pero el es el encanto de esa zona de Nueva York.

Now little china

Nice neighborhood but very small and surrounded by shops and Chinese restaurants. Hard to tell where it ends and where it begins Chinatown Little Italy. Council to have dinner or lunch at "Il Fornaio" great for money. Try the chicken parmesan!

Ormai little china

Bel quartiere ma piccolissimo e circondato da negozi e ristoranti cinesi. Difficile capire dove finisce Chinatown e dove inizia Little Italy. Consiglio di cenare o pranzare da "Il Fornaio" ottimo per qualità prezzo. Assaggiate il pollo al parmigiano!

Hermoso lugar

Little Italy es un hermoso lugar, pero cada vez más pequeño, siendo comido por Chinatown.
