A note about 14th Street today

An EVG reader passes along a gridlock alert for drivers, passengers and crosstown bus passengers (well, anyone) on 14th Street ... there is the Second Avenue Street Festival going on until 5 p.m. today, which is causing some gridlock action as the top photo shows.

Oh, and the L is down for the weekend. (2019 preview!)

As for the Street Festival, there is a better-than-usual selection of street meat...

...and beware of the lousy Beyonce bootlegs...

Street fair! Street fair! Street fair!

Oh yeah!

Just getting set up this morning at 9... this street fair runs from 14th Street ("East Union Square")

...down to Sixth Street, where traffic is already fucked backed up.

Now for something really scary

The horror: 14th Street and Ninth Avenue late on a Saturday night. A Chelsea resident chronicled the "intolerable noise." Indeed, what a horror show.

It has begun

Looks as if street festival season has started up again...Third Avenue between 14th Street and, I'm guessing, 23rd Street was closed off last Saturday. Counted seven of them taking place in Manhattan this coming weekend. (That's SEVEN opportunities to buy four Gap T-shirts for $10 Or bags of tube socks! Or quickie back rubs!) Do these offer any benefit to the local community? I've never heard anyone actually say they look forward to a street festival -- or even admit actually going to one. I'm all for things to bring the community together (such as the various rummage and porch sales different blocks have), but just not the street fairs that seem to peddle the same crap weekend after weekend throughout the spring and summer.
