Little Hungary
"Little Hungary" is part of what is now the "East Village." The term is not used any more, but "Little Hungary" was probably one of the earliest "Little" ethnically named neighborhoods to follow "Little Italy."

3 July 1896, New York (NY) Times, pg. 9:
"Little Hungary," that east side domain with indefinable boundaries, had its sensation yesterday.

8 July 1896, Los Angeles (CA) Times, pg. 4:
The Quaint Little Shops on the East Side of the City.
(New York Mail and Express) Alternated with the cafes and saloons of Little Hungary are the aepfelwein stubes. The cross streets running east from the Bowery, as far north as Tenth street, have at least one to a block.

4 August 1901, New York (NY) Times, pg. SM24:
THE settlement worker led the reporter down into "Little Hungary," which lies along East Houston Street, from Allen to the river, and of the northeast fringe of the sweat shop district.
