Awesome! I love it when the thread title doesn't mention the name of the city. Leaves me guessing until I realize it's Omaha.

But since when does Omaha have a Little Italy? Or is it a fake Little Italy like that strip-mall Chinatown in Vegas?

Thanks. I find being ambigous helps draw people in. Plus living in a city that isn't a huge city it helps when people think they could be looking at some place more popular. I like my city to be judged on it's own merits and am not into alot of hyperbole.

There is actuallly a "Little Italy" in Omaha. The condo project is taking the name and running with it. The area is actually called the Dahlman Park neighborhood. Their are/were many of the old Italian restaurants and steakhouses in the area. Orsil's, an Italian bakery, is in the Dahlman area too.

My mom is real good friends with one family in the area. They are all full blown Italian. They all live on the same street, they all have the same last name, and they all belong to a group called the "Sons of Italy" which I understand is some sort of legitimate businessmens club. There is even a mafia history in the area. There are tunnels underneath the houses used by bootleggers during the prohibition era and beyond.
