I have to say, I've enjoyed the Feast of San Gennaro this year more than any other. Perhaps it's because Little Italy is quickly shrinking into nothingness, so it's a joy to see so many people celebrating New York's Italian heritage. Or, maybe it's because it's the festival that keeps on going, despite gentrification and criticisms. Yes, it's loud, smelly, aggressive, chaotic and in your face - isn't that what New York is all about?
Mmm, street meat!
Win a giant Rasta-banana!
You can't go wrong with a treat from Ferrara's...
But, the highlight of the festival was this man and his voice. This was a tribute to Frank Sinatra on Saturday.
As usual, apologies for the video quality. Some day, I'll learn how to zoom and focus at the same time...
