Leslie,
Looks liek it was in Cleveland's "Big Italy." See the following articles on Italians in Cleveland at Case Western Reserve University's Encyclopedia of Cleveland.

"By the late 1920s, the formative period was complete; 6 Italian neighborhoods had been established. The largest was BIG ITALY, located along Woodland and Orange avenues from E. 9th St. to E. 40th St. LITTLE ITALY, centered at Mayfield and Murray Hill roads, proved the most enduring of the settlements."

Hope this helps a little.

Janet
