In Little Italy, I expected to find aging Italian men sitting on benches smoking cigars while wearing well-made leather shoes. At the very least I was certain there would be a mustached Italian barber or a pizza maker spinning dough in a storefront window. That was not the case. Instead I spotted lots of urbanites. I was a little disappointed.

It cracks me up how easy it is to spot a European man. I knew before Joel said a word to me that he was not American. European guys are usually better groomed and tend to go overboard on trends. Joel's messenger bag, belt buckle, jacket, and sunglasses, scream Euro.

Joel is an exchange student from Switzerland. He was in Little Italy to chow down on some Italian food.

What I find disappointing about Little Italy is the number of modern, high-rise condos that don't even have a whiff of Italian architecture. What were they thinking? They could be buildings in any city neighborhood anywhere. Why not something like what Italian architect Renzo Piano does?

Dwbat, I agree. SD's lack of ethnic neighborhoods breaks my heart.
