Deep dive into one of Manhattan's most storied neighborhoods on a walking tour of Little Italy. Walk the lanes and avenues where many American dreams were born, learning about what took place in this historic area from your local guide. Begin your tour at the Chinatown Little Italy information kiosk and discover the entire northern portion of historic Little Italy. Learn about the first American Catholic Church built specifically for the Italian American community and pay tribute to the haunts of the first Italian American Police Lieutenant, Joseph Petrosino. See the streets where famed film producer/director Martin Scorsese grew up and see locations of many famous films and TV shows. Don’t be surprised if your tour takes place during filming of new productions. Finally, meet the locals of the neighborhood as you discover all the Italian owned establishments. This tour is the Official Walking Tour of the Chinatown Little Italy Historic District and is in partnership with Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and the Chinatown Little Italy Historic District Association.
