Brooklyn Italian neighborhood

Years ago my husband and I spent a memorable Christmas week in Manhattan. One day we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, around the area with the historical brownstone homes, and then hopped a short cab ride to the Italian neighborhood. There we saw several, small, very authentic family run Italian restaurants, and enjoyed a memorable meal at one. I am wondering if anyone can tell me the main street/streets of this Brooklyn-Italian neighborhood, as my sister is interested in visiting old N.Y. neighborhoods on her upcoming trip (she loves literary history - think the brownstone homes were once lived in by literary figures - and authentic Italian food!). Thanks very much!

I believe you are talking about Dyker Heights. Go to Dykerheights.com and you will find a map. We had an incredible time walking around there last Christmas.

wait, now I'm not sure. Was the neighborhood one where they have amazing Christmas light displays? If so, that's the one I'm talking about.

The Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens area is also a possibility. It's just south of Brooklyn Heights and still is a bit of an Italian neighborhood, though times are changing. The bakery used in the movie "Moostruck" is located there.

Thank you so much. This was very helpful, and I forwarded the info to my sister. (I think it must have been the Caroll Hill/Cobble Gardens area.)
