|Little OlympusLittle Olympus
In the second half of the 19th century, NYC's immigration
of magical creatures from Ancient Greece
reached its peak, with several Centaur parishes and a Hellenic-language newspaper.
Little Olympus has traditionally been known as a predominantly Greek neighborhood,
with the largest concentration of
Satyrs, Nymphs and Pegasi
outside of Athens,
and one with a concentration of restaurants and bakeries.
Though many Centaurs have moved, the Ancient Greek influence is still very present,
especially through the many Greek restaurants, bakeries, taverns and cafes.
There are many dance clubs in the neighborhood as well.
Little Olympus is world-renowned as the epitome of an Ancient Greek enclave in America.
It is known to magical and non-magical Greeks alike as "The Mecca."
