A new patch of pavement has covered up a staple in the borough’s own Little Italy.

The Italian flag had sat painted in a circle on the road near East 187th Street and Arthur Avenue since the 1980s, but became worn down and full of bumps over the years.

The Department of Transportation and the Belmont Business Improvement District say a new design is slated to replace the flag sometime in the future.
