Families still flock to the exuberant micro neighborhood in lower Manhattan known as Little Italy.  Some are searching for a cultural heritage, a romantic vestige of New York’s past, good food and or a festive atmosphere.  On our last visit our focus was GELATO–the gelato that carries us across the Atlantic and drops our taste […]
