The Little Italy of the Bronx

Arthur Avenue is located in the Belmont area of the Bronx, right in the heart of what is often referred to as “the Real Little Italy”. Many Italians settled in this neighbourhood after coming to New York through Ellis Island. The community grew rapidly and many immigrants sold meats, pasta and cheese from outdoor pushcarts. The indoor market was created in 1940 to give the vendors a warm place to sell their goods. Today Arthur Avenue remains a mecca for an authentic Italian culinary experience.
