Italian East Harlem

Italian East Harlem " href="http://www.nmcah.org/exhibitions/italian.htm"&gt;Pleasant Avenue (Manhattan) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Pleasant Avenue is a north-south street in the East Harlem neighborhood of the New York City borough of Manhattan. It begins at E. 114th Street and ends at E. 120th Street. Pleasant Avenue was the heart of Italian Harlem from the late 1890s to the 1970s. The small remaining Italian population resides on Pleasant Avenue. Both in real life and in the movies, Pleasant Avenue has long been associated with the Mafia.[1] The street was the northernmost section of Avenue A, which stretched from Alphabet City northward, and were added to the grid wherever space allowed between First Avenue and the East River. This stretch was renamed Pleasant Avenue in 1879.[2][3] [edit] References ^ Kilgannon, Corey; and Mallozzi, Vincent M.
