The 10th Street block party is happening tomorrow (on 10th Street)

The 10th Street block party returns tomorrow (Saturday!) to that lovely tree-lined stretch between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. 

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., you can find antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing (no tube socks or tube steaks!) and music, featuring Michael Lydon and Ellen Mandel. Veselka will also be offering up some pierogi. And we're told that St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery is serving as the sponsor. 

Last year's event was cancelled due to the pandemic. And if our math is accurate this would be No. 50 for the block party!

Thanks to Doug for the pic!

Ditto! This is always a fun sale, gathering, high-spirits event.

So happy to be there every year. It is remarkable how sad it is to enjoy the beautiful, peacefulness of this block just once a year: This block needs to be blocked off completely every Sunday in the warm seasons. Obviously it doesn't hinder any emergency vehicles operations or traffic flow. Residents and members of the community and visitors can enjoy some peacefulness and quietness if you remove the parked cars and block off traffic. No need for programing, definitely no amplified music, just a safe quiet street for people to use.
