It's been years since Italians were actually the majority in New York's Little Italy -- the neighborhood is nearly 90% Asian now -- but the one thing that keeps the Italian presence strong in this part of town is the food. The best Italian restaurants in New York are of course in Little Italy. Some family-run eateries have been operating in Little Italy for over a century. These are the backbone of the neighborhood, and a must-have New York dining experience. Most of Little Italy's restaurants are together on Mulberry Street. The annual Feast of San Gennaro takes over Mulberry Street for 11 days each September. The festival is a jubilant celebration of Italian heritage with parades, music, and food -- including a cannoli-eating competition! Over one million visitors flock to Little Italy to participate each year.
