Toys R Us is in the middle of Times Square.

There are 2 jewelery districts, one on Canal Street in Chinatown/Little Italy, the other 6th Avenue in the 40's near Rockefeller Center.

Little Italy is north of Canal Street near Mulberry/Mott Street, right near Chinatown (actually Chinatown is slowly but surely taking over Little Italy).

What is left of Little Italy (or at least, what the tourists look for) is largely on Mulberry Street on the two blocks north of Canal Street, and also on the portions of Grand Street (which runs parallel to Canal) adjacent to Mulberry.

There are several jewelry centers. The "Diamond District" is West 47th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. There is also a large concentration of jewelry stores on Canal Street west of Bowery, and continuing around the corner onto Bowery north of Canal.

Funny, Chinatown is taking over our Italian neighborhood (North Beach) here in San Francisco too. Just had to mention that. Funny.

If you go into Transfiguration Church on Mott Street (which from around 1900 up until the mid 60's would have been considered an "Italian" parish, if you can imagine such a thing in that location today) you can see a reflection of how the neighborhood changed over time by the saints whose statues were placed there over the years -- beginning with St. Patrick for the Irish, then St. Anthony for the Italians, and now ...Our Lady of China!!

Hey huey&samantha, are Walmart and all of the chain stores trying to take over, too?

We fought tooth & nail to keep Walmart out of Queens, but am afraid it is just a matter of time, and I will grieve when that happens.

Bad enough we have 7-11 !!!

Just a recommendation about Little Italy. Don't eat there. The restaurants are over priced with mediocre food. There are many other better Italian restaurants in NYC.
