The Lower East Side is a neighborhood famous for its variety of evening establishments. But what really makes it an unique part of New York’s landscape are the multitude of tasty food choices and independent retailers that keep residents occupied in the day time.
In an attempt to showcase the culinary and retail diversity that the neighborhood boasts, the Lower East Side Business Improvement District hosted its second DayLife block party. This past Sunday (Sept 30th) Orchard street again featured vendor push carts, music and family activities spread over three blocks.
New hit restaurant Mission Chinese embraced the LES pushcart tradition
Rain interrupted the event for a short while but the vendors didn’t stop foot traffic, as thousands of visitors sampled what the LES has to offer.
Brooklyn Taco was on site and keeping busy
DayLife piloted in June and was so much fun for both the vendors and residents, that a repeat was in order. The event is serving as a nice lead into the LES Pickle Day’s comeback (October 28th, and knowing some of the vendors we sure cannot wait).
