Everything is fast-paced today. Food. Phones. Driving. Shopping. Life. Things happen quickly on College Street too, but our BIA found that there's a bigger idea uniting the community: it's a nice place to slow down & spend time in. The BIA, an eclectic mix of businesses in "Little Italy" , conducted some research and lots of eating & tasting to discover that all of Little Italy has delicious food options, stylish boutique shops, authentic culture from around the world & a very European sense of comfort and familiarity. People know each other. Visitors are guests. Time slows a bit, things taste better, folks smile more here. So the businesses decided to encourage "guests" to "Go Slowly" with everything they enjoy on College Street. Drop by anytime. We'd be happy to chat. And come to our "Taste of Little Italy" street festival in June.
