This is becoming true of Philadelphia's Italian Market.

Food and family emphasis? Food is central in Italian's lives for sure. We grew up not remembering much else, but what we ate and when. Hehe.

You see them with Blacks as well and it goes both ways in terms of gender sometimes too.

Irish people are not WASPs.

WASP = White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Aside from maybe some northern Irish, that wouldn't describe the Irish.

You see it around here a little bit, with it being the other way around occasionally. I think some of it stems from integration of schools and a couple in particular in the area with a good amount of both groups.

In the case of Philadelphia's Italian Market, far more Asian....particularly the Vietnamese and a smattering of Laotians and Cambodians.

Same here in Syracuse's North Side. I'd say the only difference is that around here, there are other refugee groups on that side of town now too.

To ja1myn, it doesn't occur a lot, but you see it both ways.

I am half Italian and half Puerto Rican... this is happening all over Cleveland as well. Certain parts of the city and its suburbs are over 40% hispanic. NE Ohio has been one of the bigger importers of Puerto Ricans. They go to school in Puerto Rico and come to the US after college.
