Little Italy in Niagara Falls, NY

my local newspaper (in Lockport, NY) listed Little Italy Niagara Museum, along with an address and hours open for several weeks. It sounded interesting so my cousin and I decided... read more

Beautiful! Very quiet place, nice to seat in a bench and watch people pass by drinking a Tim Horton's coffee =)

Some interesting restaurants in here, and a bustling neighbourhood for the people who live in the area, but not worth a visit. None of the Italian-American character that you would expect. Somebody made an impulsive attempt to create a tourist attraction where one doesn't exist. Once the sign needs maintenance, tear it down and use the savings to try and... More

my local newspaper (in Lockport, NY) listed Little Italy Niagara Museum, along with an address and hours open for several weeks. It sounded interesting so my cousin and I decided to check it out today during their open hours. We got to the address and found a convenience store. The man in the store has never heard of the museum.... More

I was really looking forward to visiting the Little Italy area, but was really disappointed. The area is really run down and I wouldn't want to make the trip at night...Is be very uncomfortable walking around that area at night.

Would highly recommend Fortuna's Restaurant on 19th Street in this part of the city. Their Veal Parmigiana is fork tender and their portion of two huge servings is very generous. The marinara sauce is very flavorful as well.

This is a part of town that is very small. Most of the buildings are boarded up and or run down. I am not sure if this is because they are open for only part of the season or if this is actual what this is like all the time. Not what I would think about if I was in... More

While it was obviously the commercial hub of a vibrant Italian community at one time only little reminders remain like the few Italian restaurants hidden within a lot of run down looking shops that appear to cater to the mostly poor neighborhood around this small commercial stretch of road.

We drove through "Little Italy" on the way to the Niagara Aquarium. Things looked very dismal. The best things to see were the portrait of Tommy Tedesco (once the top sessions man in the world in my opinion) and the overhead, wrought iron, signs on either end of the area (on Pine Avenue).

huh? this is an attraction... well, it does have an arched sign on pine avenue, but then so does Brocton, new York, and there's nothing there either... a somewhat ragged assortment of restaurants, abandoned taprooms and pawnshops... can't figure out how anybody sees this as an attraction...

Perspective is important when visiting Niagara Falls, USA. After all, it is flawed yet interesting city that has seen decades of hard times after the mafia and defunct manufacturing left it by the wayside. That said, there are a few holdout neighborhoods and landmarks. Because they struggle to survive, they have more character than anything that can be located on... More
