Indian New York City
New York City has many Little Indias. There are two in Manhattan.
“Curry Row” is on East 6th St, between First & Second Ave. It’s fun to walk the 6th St at night with the smell of curry and the sound of the sitar wafting through the air. We love the row of restaurants with red chili lights on First Ave at the corner of 6th St.
Manhattan’s second Little India is on Lexington, between 27th & 29th St. It’s called “Curry Hill.” The spice shop Kalustyan’s is a neighborhood highlight at 123 Lexington Ave.
The Indo-Latin Connection
Flamenco originates with the Romani people of Northern India. You can hear the relation in melodic and rhythmic forms. You can see the relation in the fiery hands of flamenco and Indian classical dancers.
Indian people and culture mix into the Latin world through the Caribbean and the north coast of South America. In the Colonial Period, they came to the British, Dutch and French Caribbean as indentured workers. English-speaking Trinidad, Jamaica and Barbados; Dutch-speaking Suriname; and French-speaking Guadeloupe, Martinique and French Guiana have important Indian communities.
Dougla people are Afro-Indians of the West Indies. The Geoffrey Holder ballet “Dougla” is Dance Theatre of Harlem’s signature piece.
You can taste the good curry in West Indian food. It’s one of the joys of Brooklyn’s West Indian Day Parade.
