The New Littles: Guyanans, Italians, and A Map!
Thursday, June 16, 2011
Each Thursday in June, the Brian Lehrer Show and Andrew Beveridge of Social Explorer will discuss New York’s diverse communities - areas of ethnic concentration that are changing quickly or that you may not know about.
Listener Monica Dus discusses her Italian neighborhood of Astoria, alongside Giuseppe Vitterale, owner of Ornella Trattoria. Then Vishnu Mohadeo, a community activist and teacher in Richmond Hill, Queens, discusses the area "Little Guyana."

New Littles now has a map form. WNYC has taken Andrew Beveridge's data set and mapped it around the city. Explore the full map here, and check out the neighborhoods discussed on today's show below:
