The neighborhood began when Italian immigrants fresh out of Ellis Island, settled in the Belmont Community, in the Fordham section of the Bronx. Many new immigrants made their living by working and selling products from pushcarts, most often food items. The days of the pushcart have passed but there is still an abundance of restaurants, butchers, bakeries, and cafes lining the streets. There is even an indoor market filled with Italian specialties.
