Little Italy: Brooklyn, New York

Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, NY
There are other shrinking neighborhoods in other New York City Buroughs such as Bensonhurts, Brooklyn, which was once mostly Italian (remember the Italian Cult Classic Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta?) and at one point half Jewish, we now find a lot of immigrant Russian and Russian-Jews in this neighborhood.

Carroll Heights, Brooklyn, NY
This is a more expensive section of Brooklyn, just a few minutes over the Brooklyn Bridge from lower Manhattan and has a spectacular view of Manhattan.  Around Christmas time you can see streets lit up like Las Vegas with all sorts of nativity scene and other holiday decorations and lights.
