Little Italy, New York City

An urban village that attracts thousands of visitors every year, Little Italy is known for its restaurants. The authentic food served at these eateries is a centerpiece of many cultural events in the neighborhood. If you talk to the locals, you'll find that many of the restaurants are built on places that involved the New York mafia from the early 20th century. Wander down the narrow streets and find a small storefront joint to enjoy a meal. See Little Italy and all New York City has to offer by arranging your trip with our New York City trip planner .

  • Little Italy is located next to Chinatown, when one is so ever since, you can watch it. There are only a few streets, mainly full of restaurants. However, it is very touristy and not really authentic.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
