Are there St. Joseph altars in any other place than New Orleans?

    I've heard of them in other places with Sicilian folks but I don;t think it is as big a cultural phenomenon anywhere else. Supposedly New Orleans once had the largest Sicilian populationin teh US of A. An Italian friend form New Jersey said he'd seen a few there.
    One of the best used to be down on Royal near Bywater..terrific stuffed artichokes

      For anyone who might be interested in St. Joseph's Altars in NOLA:

      I believe Brooklyn does altars, too.
