Little Italy in Manhattan

I captured this photo when I was in New York last month. The place is called Little Italy in Manhattan. It was called Little Italy because it was once occupied by large population of Italians. The place is right on Mulberry Street from Spring Street to Canal Street in Manhattan. I just love these streets because of many New York's best Italian restaurants and cafes.

I was just disappointed I never experienced the ten-day Feast of San Gennaro, usually takes place in Mulberry Street. During this celebration the shrines and relics of this saint are paraded through the streets. Many people will enjoy Italian foods of all types, rides, games, entertainment, and audience-participation singing and dancing.
