Charlie D Helps Past Residents of Italian Harlem Find Their Way Back To The Old Neighborhood

Charles DeMonte was born in East Harlem, New York. Known and loved by all his friends from the old neighborhood, as Charlie D, he has developed a fantastic site in such a short period of time that has been overwhelmed with past and present residents visiting and talking about the good old days in East Harlem., once known as "Italian Harlem."

Through Charlie's website "The Old Neighborhood Online" he has enabled people to reconnect with each other on a daily basis. Charlie expresses his thanks to the Giglio Boys and the East Harlem Reunions for revitalizing the spirit of East Harlem. Thanks Charlie for keeping the memories of the Old Neighborhood alive. M.M.

My grandmother lived in Italian East Harlem at the turn of the 20th century. Her name was Angelina Santonastasio. Her father was Francesco and he owned a grocery store, on 1st ave, I think. I would like to research this but do not know where to start. Can anyone help? She was married in St. Lucy's Church in 1905 and moved to Brooklyn. She was originally from Casagiove, Italy right outside of Naples.
