Old Mill Basin

Old Mill Basin still has many Italian American businesses along its main strip of Avenue N. The neighborhood is bound by Avenue U to Avenue M, and Flatbush Avenue to E 65th Street. Much of Old Mill Basin is mutually exclusive with Mill Basin and Bergen Beach on the side bordering E65th and along Avenue U, and Marine Park bordering Flatbush Avenue.

Old Mill Basin had a strong Italian presence during most of the 20th century and there are still Italian businesses and families in the neighborhood despite a gradual exodus. The neighborhood is bordered by New Mill Basin, Flatbush and Flatlands. The main artery of Old Mill Basin, Avenue N, still has a few blocks with old Italian American businesses. Notable in this neighborhood are Aliotta Pastry, and Landi’s Pork Store.
