Does designating an area of the city a special district like Little Italy actually spur development? Syracuse is the mist of a project creating a Little Italy on North Salina Street. New sidewalks, banners, lamp posts, etc. are the only real difference. North Salina street used to be all Italian, but now more Vietnamese and other immigrants are found there. There are a couple good Italian restaurants and an old church, but thats all the "Italian" stuff found there.
