Default Little Italy today

Hi, I'm Davide from Italy. My questions are about italian-american society in New York and, in particular, about Little Italy today
I read that now Little Italy is only a bunch of restaurant and other shops recently closed. 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 air.. And now how is it? Is it true that in Mulberry Street there isn't italian-american people living there? It would be very sad How many italian-american people live there today?
Thank you very much!

Hi, Davide.

You asked almost this exact same question a couple months ago and got a lot of responses.

Which is the real Little Italy today?

^^^^^^
The scariest thing about the above picture is that there are now a few of those loaded with junk,tacky Chinese gift shop emporiums that have opened up near 187th St and Arthur Avenue.

Gotta love the Chinese.They must be trying to copy the success they had with taking over Manhattan's Little Italy.

The shops seem really strange and out of place on 187th St but who knows.Maybe in 10 or 20 years Arthur Ave will look like the above picture.

Can't argue with that! Come over to 8 Avenue in Sunset Park. If you didn't know you were in Brooklyn, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from Canal Street!
