Actually it's also very Asian(Vietnamese and Cambodian) too. The Vietnamese started arriving in S. Philly after the Vietnam War.

The point being made is there isn't much left in the way of Italians in the "Italian Market area" beyond the specialty stores like Dibruno's, Superior Pasta, etc.

Baltimore has a "Little Italy" neighborhood just off the inner harbor. Small but has some good Italian restaurants.

Baltimore's little Italy may have the best location in the US.

Maybe, maybe not. I don't have a source but I believe South Philly (it's not called Little Italy) still has one of the highest concentrations of Italians in the country. And this thread is about "Best Italian Community." I have never heard anyone from out-of-town ever say that South Philly's Italian community is small until now.

I know for the Utica-Rome area, East Utica(especially the outer East and SE neighborhoods), Rome's "Little Italy" along East Dominick Street on its East Side and Frankfort just east of Utica(has one of the highest Italian percentages in the US) are some parts where you would find concentrations in that area.

Pittston in the Scranton-Wilkes Barre area has a high Italian percentage.
