Welcome, Italian American Museum!

Vincent Mallozzi reports in the New York Times that the Italian American Museum opens Tuesday in the former Banca Stabile on Mulberry Street, which served Italian immigrants from 1882 to 1932. The museum opened on 44th Street in 2001, but this is obviously a much better location!

Thursday, Sept. 11, is the first day of the San Gennaro Festival in Little Italy, with an outdoor Mass for 9/11 victims.

The cannoli-eating competition is Friday at 1 pm, and the party will go on another week before wrapping up on Sunday, Sept. 21.
