Block Parties

Street festivals are part of the many attractions that make NYC quite different than other cities. As a young child and teenager, I always looked forward to the Atlantic Antic or the Labor Day parade(more on this in a future post).

I always enjoyed crush of the people and the delicious food and unique sights and sounds.
People would always have their sound 'equipment' on the street with police barracades. The private block parties dwindled in the early to mid-90's due police permits and a bit of gun play.

So, whenever I do get a glimpse of private block party, I get hit with a bit of nostalgia.
Good vibes..
