Little Italy NY circa 1900

Postby acupxpa » 21 May 2010, 03:28

When my grandparents first came over in 1906, they listed their cousins' address on Elizabeth St. in Little Italy (NY) as their destination on the ships manifest. So I was looking around for pictures of Little Italy around that time and found this picture of Mulberry St.

I thought some of you might like to see it. (Check out the hi def image and look at the detail..)

Wow thats a great photo. And it was just at 1900 that my family was there on that exact street. I cant help but wonder if they are in that crowd. Awesome!
