Why is Arthur Avenue, the Little Italy in the Bronx, NY, so unique amongst America’s Italian enclaves? After a day of filming the newest episode of Greetings From Italian America, Rossella, Pat, and John sit down for a plate of fresh-made pasta with Danielle Oteri, the co-founder of ‘Feast on History’ and the ‘Arthur Avenue Food Tours’ to discuss just what makes this neighborhood so unique.
