We’ll walk the streets of Little Italy, absorbing the sights, the sounds, and the tastes of this colorful neighborhood rich with a triumphant, if occasionally bloody, history. Explore Mulberry Street, with its rich aromas of pasta and pastry wafting from nearly every storefront. Discover the spot where a legendary mafia assassination took place, or just take a moment to sample some cannoli.
Finally, we’ll venture into the vibrant world of New York’s Chinatown, once the largest enclave of Chinese expatriates in the Western Hemisphere. Learn about struggles of the earliest immigrants, coming to the city to build a new home. Awe at the violence of the Tong Wars, a forgotten dark chapter of New York history, chronicling those who would steal control of the neighborhood for themselves.
