Little Italy, NYC
Description: Concentrated on Manhattan’s Mulberry Street between Broome and Canal, this authentic Italian neighborhood-turned-tourist strip is packed with Italian restaurants, souvenir shops, and street vendors.
Why We Love It: More tuxedoes per square foot than any other place in the city; September’s 11-day San Gennaro Festival; Frank Sinatra’s favorite restaurant, Grotta Azzurra.
