The Little Italy community has existed since the 19th Century, when thousands of Italian immigrants populated the Lower East Side. While very few Italians live in the neighborhood today, the community spirit continues to be exhibited every September for eleven days, as millions of people of all nationalities enjoy the festive atmosphere, games, and of course, the food. Sausage, calamari, pizza, pasta and pastries attract the crowds, and the party atmosphere keeps them there until late at night. Admission is free.
