    There is a lot of street work going on right now, and Date St. is blocked off (b/w India and Columbia). You will need to walk down Cedar to India to see this. Very Italian feel to it.

    This is one of America's finest neighborhoods in America's Finest City. Despite the name, it is not exclusively Italian food and gelato shops, though those are plentiful.
