Little Italy’s on Mulberry, right? Actually, the real Little Italy stands along Arthur Avenue in Belmont, an area in west Bronx. On this SusanSez NYC Walkabout, you’ll transport into ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s culture, embracing the mom-and-pop shops along Belmont’s Arthur Avenue, and taste-test Italian specialties like bureks, crusty bread, olives, cheese, pizza, and more. During your exploration, you’ll visit the mesmerizing Arthur Avenue Retail Market, classic food shops, and even the street corners where Dion and The Belmonts sang acapella before they made it big. In an area laced with history and good eats, you’ll want to explore your Italian side more and more. Grab a cannoli or four for this walkabout!
