It seems to be a good thing for Italian-Americans and the Little Italy neighborhood that has been shrinking for decades. But is it too late? It's to bad someone could not get this done years ago, when the neighborhood still had a majority of Italian residents. I am very interested in the subject because my great-grandftather lived in Little Italy when he immigrated to the area in the 1920's.

I would love to hear from others who are interested in the subject or who have had ancestors who lived in Little Italy.

Well the Italians wanted a piece of the 'burbs, so the neighborhood shrunk. Cause and effect.
