This is the 82nd year the Feast of San Gennaro has filled the streets of Little Italy in NYC with music, food, smells to die for, and a smile on everyone's face. Walk down Mulberry Street during the Feast and you can pretend you are actually in Italy.
You can sit outside at a cafe, sip wine and watch the world go by. Or, walk past the endless array of food vendors (this is after all a feast!). Grab some clams, calamari, and shrimp at Umberto's and walk over to get yourself a fresh squeezed lemonade in a coconut. Delicious!
Graze at the stands offering empanadas-not Italian, but no one cared-, or my personal favorite; a cheese steak sandwich smothered in onions, peppers, and tons of ketchup! The last day is Sunday, September 20th. Go! It's a fabulous way to spend a gorgeous September day. And I forgot to mention, it's all for charity.
