CELEBRATE ITALIAN HERITAGE MONTH WITH A TRIP TO

LITTLE ITALY OF THE BRONX – ATHUR AVENUE

 

Join the Italian Cultural Center of Western Massachusetts for a trip to the famous Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, NY on Saturday, October 20, 2018. We will be leaving from Enfield Mall at 9:00 am and should arrive at Arthur Avenue around 11:45 am. You will be on your own to explore the many restaurants and shops in the area. We will leave Arthur Avenue at 5:00 pm and arrive back to the Enfield Mall around 7:45 pm. The cost of the trip is $60 per person. Space is limited and seats will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations must be made in advance by calling Stephanie at 860-305-1175 or e-mailing to iccwm@comcast.net. The deadline for reservations and payment is Friday, October 5th.

One of Arthur Avenue’s famous attractions is the Arthur Avenue Retail Market – a covered Italian bazaar that brings together under one roof all the shopping (also found on nearby streets), from sausage makers to bread bakers, cafes to florists. The variety is truly staggering – about nine restaurants, five pastry shops, four butchers, two pasta-makers, six bread stores, three pork stores, five gourmet delicatessens, two fish markets, three gourmet coffee shops and one gourmet Italian wine shop – to list only the food category. And then there are the gift and houseware shops to explore!
