1. The Neighborhood - Little Italy Marker
Inscription.  Most came from Southern Italy from 1900-1914. There were some 4 million. Many stayed here in Little Italy. And it became “The Neighborhood,” from Bleeker St. on the north to Canal St. on the south, Lafayette St. on the west to the Bowery on the east. Most had no money, no education, and no special skills. But they had their families, their church, their wits, and a fierce determination to thrive. They did.
