Announcements will be made about:
Troy’s Little Italy, a brainchild of Rocco DeFazio that is supported by U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno, the City of Troy and many area neighborhood groups covers the area stretching north of the Poestenkill Canal and ending just south of the Pottery District (4th Street from Ida to Division in Troy). This area has traditionally been an Italian enclave, and features many successful Italian-American owned businesses today, as well as the Italian Community Center and the CYO.
Little Italy districts in cities across the United States are tourist attractions, great residential neighborhoods, and feature lower crime rates than other city districts, making them pleasant neighborhoods to visit and to call home.
