I read that now Little Italy is only a bunch of restaurant and other shops recently closed. Could anybody tell me if is it true?? I last went to New York in 2008 and I remember that Little Italy was only in a piece of Mulberry Street, but there still was Umberto's, Pasticceria Roma and so on. And you could breathe italian-american feel.. And now how is it? Is it true that in Mulberry Street there is italian-american people nomore living there? It would be very sad...
How many italian-american people live there today?
A question for the experts: Italian Harlem still exists? Wikipedia says that around 1,000 Italian-Americans still living in this area, is it true? More italian-american people live here than in Little Italy??
Considering all this, which neighbourhood do you think would be the new and real Little Italy in New York today? Bensonhurst, Belmont or what?
Staten Island and Bay Ridge.

Does somebody know if there are Italian-American people that still live in Little Italy? And how many Italian-American people live there?

If you wanna see an Italian-American the safest bet right now is Staten Island.

I'm on Staten Island for 21 yrs now, originally from Queens....and let me say, the Italians here are 3rd and 4th generation, never been to Italy, do not speak the language, and have the mobster thing going. I'm not being disrespectful, I'm half Sicilian. Just saying, it isn't the "Little Italy" feel the OP was referring to.
