LOL  The sammich sounds good.
 
The closest thing to 'urban' living for me was when I moved out of my mom's place for the first time.
It was on Shelby St. near Fountain Square on Indy's near east side.
 
An apartment above an auto parts store where my best friend worked. We were popular with the girls in the neighborhood who liked to get high and party.  Evil Smile

Do such Ital neighborhoods even exist anymore?  Boston, maybe?  I think all the white ethnics moved to the 'burbs in the 60s and 70s and 80s.

I dunno, Pa.  I just can't see those neighborhoods existing much anymore.  Most have moved to the 'burbs.
 
From the 'net:
 
 
Chicago:
 
Around 1970, many changes occurred in the Italian Chicago neighborhoods. Various urban renewal projects took place for public housing, highways, and in the case of Little Italy, for the making of University of Illinois’ Chicago campus. This caused many Italian families to move to western suburbs. Today, remnants of the neighborhoods remain, but lack not only the rich culture that used to exist but also the Italian families themselves (Chicago Encyclopedia).
 
 
Little Italy, NYC:
 
NYC’s best know Italian neighborhood that once covered about 50 blocks of Lower Manhattan. Today it is engulfed by ever-expanding Chinatown and trendy, no-longer-so-Italian Nolita (North of Little Italy).  The neighborhood is now just five blocks of Mulberry Street between Canal & Spring and a bit of the intersecting cross streets. According to a recent census, only about 5 percent of residents in the neighborhood are of Italian descent.  But, for those looking to experience “authentic” Little Italy, there are still a few businesses run by founding families where you can get a taste of the old neighborhood.
 
 
North Beach, San Francisco:
 
Since the 1980s, and much like Manhattan's Little Italy, due to a decrease in emigration from Italy and gentrification, the neighborhood has seen its native Italian American population rapidly shrink, while neighboring Chinatown has been rapidly expanding north into the neighborhood south of Broadway and along Stockton Street causing a major demographic shift to a mix of mostly Chinese and young professional population, although some, albeit very few, Italian Americans remain.

If Frankie's Subway Italian Hero sub really had "...a lotta meat!!!..." as the woman in the window exclaimed, it's because he paid extra for double meat. While I like Subway subs, they aren't known for being loaded down with an overabundance of meat unless you pay nearly double the price for double meat and cheese.
