A Cornerstone for the Community

The Italian American Museum is dedicated to showing the many ways Italian Americans influenced not only New York City but the United States. The historic location of the building at the corner of Mulberry and Grand Streets reflects the tradition and importance of community for Italians. It is situated where the “Banca Stabile” once stood, a bustling hub in the neighbourhood for newly arrived immigrants from Italy. Founded in 1885, this building served as much more than just a bank. It became a community service center providing Italians with many important services such as banking, travel arrangement and postal services. It gave them an important link to their relatives in Italy. The building has been restored and preserved, and now houses the Italian American Museum.
