Street Fair on Orchard Street – Lower East Side

Street fairs are fairly common in New York City and even more common in lower east side. Today, there was a big street fair on Orchard street, between Houston and Delancy which is usually where the street fair occurs on a Sunday (when traffic isn’t allowed on this section of orchard street).

It’s always good to see street fairs in lower east side, mainly because the neighborhood completely transforms itself at night with the crazy nightlife. Street fairs give a glimpse of the neighborhood that isn’t related to alcohol, so you’ll see plenty of ordinary neighborhood businesses, food stalls, etc.

(This was also a nice summer street fashion scene of New York. The same fair is covered from here from a New York Street Fashion perspective).

A nice view of the whole street from the top, between Stanton and Rivington.

It was nice to see a diverse mix of crowds, from teenagers and 20s-30s to families. Since lower east side is usually only known for its nightlife, it is always fun to spot families for such events!
