    History lesson...and food. Great combination. Tour that area today and you still get an ethnic history lesson!

    That sounds like a tour/crawl idea for The Contingent, although we have already done it without calling it Slumming.

    Thank you for providing us with so many interesting articles, scrumpciouschef. I don't know if you would call it slumming or not, but I was told by my aunt that, during the thirties and forties, my grandfather would bring home quantities of pasta with red sauce home for dinner and that it was very good. That was in Morgantown, West Virginia which had sizeable Italian and Greek populations. My family was German and English. I don't know if many people did this or if my Grandfather was just a man who knew good food when he found it but it has always struck me as perhaps unusual for the time and setting. I just wish I had been there to get MY share!

    Surprising because if there is one food that doesn't sit well it's pasta, especially in red sauce. Pasta turns soft and pasty....not a great take home item...but if they enjoyed, what the heck!!

    If you’re in NYC try to take the Lower East Side food tour.

    Indeed.  And as it's proximate to the financial district it's pretty much "hyper-safe".
