Little Mexico Street in Toronto, Canada, is a gathering area for Italians. Last year, when I was in Toronto, Canada, I met with the annual Happy Festival, so I went to join the fun. On both sides of the street are all kinds of shops, mainly Italian style, cafes, restaurants and so on. In my eyes, Happy Festival is similar to the temple fairs in China. Many shops also have many tables, ovens, promotions, distribution of free supplies and so on in front of their doors. Because there were many people and performances, we saw some policemen keeping order. People come and go, it seems particularly lively, foreigners'leisurely clothes and unrestrained enthusiasm, making the whole atmosphere romantic and pleasant. We are very excited to be involved.
Little Italy, also known as NoLIta, is located in Lower Manhattan and was named after a large Italian settlement. Little Italy is adjacent to Chinatown in the East and, together with Chinatown, is listed as the "historic block" of New York City. Many Italian stores and restaurants are preserved here, and Italian descendants are regarded as "holy places" because they are the early immigrant areas of the United States and Italy. Here you can taste the most authentic Italian cuisine and buy small souvenirs with Mediterranean flavor.
Similar to the Chinese gathering area, China City, this is an Italian gathering area. The local people are called Little italy. This street is covered with various shops with Italian flavor. There are coffee, Italian restaurants and Italian shops. You can fully appreciate the Italian flavor here.
Little Italy is home to 1926 Italian immigrants. With the expansion of Chinatown, only one block is left, mainly restaurants and shops. The Italian flag hanging on the street, the fire hydrant painted with the color of the Italian flag, and the fragrance of pizza in the air make this place full of rich Italian style.
Truth be told, the place you see on the map is actually an area. You can see that the sign says Little Italy. But apart from bars and shops, there is not much novelty. You are interested in taking a walk in the residential area. The style of your own house is quite different from that of Canadian houses.
To Little Italy, my route is to get off at Christie Metro Station and walk 1.2 kilometers with Google Map. I didn't expect to see Korea Town first. Plus the cabbage area where Irish people live together, and Chinatown in China. It's a good saying that "birds of a feather flock together, people flock together".
