America’s Little Italies: Past, Present and Future

The North End Historical Society, along with the North End Branch Library, invite you to a presentation by Jerome Krase about America’s Little Italies on Wednesday, September 19, at 6 p.m.

Jerry Krase has spent nearly fifty years visiting and photographing dozens of places in America and a few foreign cities that boasted about having an identifiable Italian neighborhood. From Boston and New York City to Portland, Maine and Wilmington, Delaware. He discovered they shared many visual characteristics and made similar claims about their authenticity.

In this presentation, we’ll take a look at some of these places and see where we came from and where we might be going. See the event flyer below.
