[In-person tour] Residents of the Italian-American neighborhoods along Arthur Avenue in the Bronx are the guardians of what some would call New York’s “real Little Italy.” Home to Doo-Wop music and authentic Italian restaurants and shops, many of the area’s businesses has have been family owned and operated for generations. Join guide Alexandra Maruri as we explore the history of this vibrant Bronx neighborhood. Arthur Avenue was recognized as one of “America’s Great Streets” by the American Planning Association.
