Bronx resident, historian and food aficionado Susan Birnbaum takes you to some of her most cherished spots among Arthur Avenue in the Belmont section of the Bronx — New York’s “real” Little Italy.
Once the home of the landed gentry (the Lorillards of tobacco fame) it became a mecca for Italian immigrants at the turn of the 20th Century. They came to build the Botanical Gardens and the Bronx Zoo. (A visit to either is a great way to enhance your day in the Bronx.) We will explore the Belmont section of the Bronx: New York’s “real” Little Italy. We’ll stroll the busy streets among the numerous mom & pop specialty food and gift shops and restaurants.Buy tickets/get more info now
