When Italian immigrants flooded into New York during the second half of the 19th century, thousands settled here. Today, roughly 5,000 Italian-Americans remain in the neighborhood, which stretches from Houston Street south to Canal and from Lafayette Street east to the Bowery. The number of Italians living in the neighborhood has dwindled some from it peak, but the heavenly aromas of Italian bakeries and restaurants still waft from Mulberry Street at the neighborhood's heart. Delicious dishes like pasta fagioli, veal saltimboca, and lobster fra diavlo keep delighted diners coming back for more. The Old World neighborhood is at its very best in mid-September, when Mulberry is renamed Via San Gennaro for the Feast of San Gennaro. During this ten-day celebration, the shrines and relics of this saint are paraded through the streets, and the tantalizing smells of fried pastry and sausages fill the air. Crowds from around the city, and indeed the world, flock to Little Italy to enjoy cappuccino and tartufo, carnival rides and games, and singing and dancing.
