Today we will venture to the Belmont neighborhood of the Bronx in New York City.  Belmont is home to the Bronx’s Little Italy, anchored by bustling Arthur Avenue with its family-run shops, bakeries and groceries. Between bites of cannoli and sips of espresso, discover an enclave that’s brimming with old-world charm.  Whether you call it Belmont, Little Italy of the Bronx or Arthur Avenue, the neighborhood beats its other rivals in the sheer number of establishments offering fine Italian-American foods, dining, house wares and other goods. The quality and values are tops – a recent ranking confirmed once again by critics like the Zagat Survey whose readers repeatedly give “Best Buy” status to more Arthur Avenue shops than any other neighborhood in New York City.


Ask any New Yorker about Arthur Avenue in the Bronx and you get either puzzlement or a flood of loving sentiment about the real Little Italy of New York, the best place for bread, pasta, meat, pastries, espresso machines, the only place to buy Italian sausage, and more. The paradox is real: Many New Yorkers never heard of the place, while for others it’s home away from home … although it is often a well-kept secret. 


The bus will drop off as close as possible to Arthur Ave and will pick up in the same general area at 5:30pm.  There will be no access to the bus during the day so if you plan on shopping, be prepared to carry your bags with you.
