Street vendors, bargains galore and food for sale. Stroll the street on Friday between 10 AM and 4 PM. The promoter, Mardi Gras Productions, calls this a block party but it’s really a one-block street fair. Dag Hammarskjold Plaza benefits because as sponsor, FDHP receives a small cut of the booth rentals, which helps offset the escalating costs of park maintenance and repairs. All NYC street fairs require a nonprofit sponsor and are produced by a promoter such as Mardi Gras.
Friday October 24, 2014, East 47th Street between 1st & 2nd Avenues, 10 AM to 4 PM.
