WATCH: Why NYC’s Real Little Italy is Thriving in The Bronx

One of our favorite neighborhoods in The Bronx is Little Italy in Belmont.

We’ve written about this gem of a neighborhood on numerous occasions and it’s simply because it’s one of the most unique enclaves in New York City and honestly because we have the best and only REAL Little Italy in the city.

NY1 took a look into the area and talks about why we’re still thriving up here while Manhattan’s more famous Little Italy is simply a shell of its former self.

You can watch the NY1 video here (sorry we can’t embed it like other videos because they’re restrictive with sharing).
