Arthur Avenue Food Tour


Discover the Little Italy of the Bronx and see the neighborhood where Broadway's "A Bronx Tale" is set. Arthur Avenue in the Bronx remains a close-knit neighborhood of Italian food shops, most of which have been in business for over 100 years. Join us for a walking tour of Arthur Avenue and 187th Street as we visit butchers, bakers, and cheese shops, as well as the famous Arthur Avenue Retail Market.
