Which comes first, the chicken or egg? I never heard of the Little Italy up and around Arthur Avenue, the commercial heart of the Belmont neighborhood in the Bronx, just south from Forhdam University. In this ethnic-religious enclave, everything about it, down to the signage, feels like a throwback to sometime in the 1970s. The bond between church, street, community, and tradition is thick and intimate. We were up just a couple of days before a festival for St. Anthony.
