I am trying to find an ultra interesting outer borough ethnic neighborhood which is worth making the trek based on a big lunch, gourmet food stores, and some history. My favorite would still be Arthur Avenue for Italian. Can anyone suggest a nice fit for German, Irish, Greek, or Italian? I love exploring these nabes or the remnants of much stronger past ethnic neighborhoods. Can anyone back up Astoria for Greek for example??????
Further any areas to steer clear of due to over hype of a certain ethnic structure?
