Welcome to
Schenectady's Little Italy
———————————————-
This Gateway and Street are dedicated to Italian immigrants who came to Schenectady during the great European immigrations to the United States beginning at the end of the 19th Century. Driven by poverty, political unrest and war, New York and our nation offered a haven from despair, providing immigrants and their children hope and opportunity in a free and democratic country.

United by language and tradition, Italian immigrants celebrated their vibrant culture here, raised families and became active and enterprising members of the community. Many found work in Schenectady's industries, while others opened shops and businesses that were essential to our City's vitality and prosperity.

This Gateway is a tribute to generations of Italian-Americans and the contributions they have made to the City of Schenectady and our country.
