My maternal great-grandparents first settled in New York's Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan circa late 1890s. Just how influential was this part of Manhattan for Italian immigrants? Also, from which part of Italy did these Italian immigrants of Hell's Kitchen emigrate? Most of us know of the Little Italys of NYC like that of the Lower East-Side or up in East Harlem, but I don't believe much is known about the Italian immigrants in Hell's Kitchen, which during the turn of century was a predominantly Irish section.
