28/50.- New York, Little Italy


Little Italy is the place to go if you want to eat fresh pasta and pizza for a reasonable price. On September 19th, Saint Gennaro, the Fiesta di San Gennaro is celebrated. During these nine days food stalls take up the 17 blocks of Little Italy. The picture you see at the right was taken on a San Gennaro day.

Although more than 40,000 people lived in Little Italy in the 19th century, currently less than 5,000 "Italians" live here. The sanitary conditions of the apartments at that time favored spreading many diseases.
