A few moments from the 25th anniversary of the Loisaida Festival today on Avenue C... via Jacob Anderson ... always one of the best street festivals around...
Ivy Irizarry-Rivera, right, of Ivy Jewel, was one of the few vendors based in the neighborhood... (Many of the other vendors were from the outer boroughs, according to festival officials...)

I was dissapointed at all the generic street fair stands, but mostly at the fact that I got a styrofoam box of rice, one plantain and some low-quality pulled pork/fat and the guy said "$15" after handing it to me.
I looked at him like he had two heads.
Is that the white man price?
$15, fuck that, I woulda gone to a restaurant.
everyone seems happy and well-intentioned and involved
If you want to support local merchants, patronize their stores. Street fairs suck and are a nuisance.
@uncle waltie - street fairs and flea markets are how david joffe makes his living.
