San Gennaro, NYC

Now in its 87th year, New York City’s annual Feast of San Gennaro runs for eleven days in September on the streets of Little Italy. From sausage and peppers to raw clams and piña coladas, the city’s longest-running street carnival boasts more than 300 street vendors sprinkled among live music and carnival games. BTR Pulse’s Lauren Hawker spoke with people at the festival.

Featured song: “Gadje Sirba” by A Hawk And A Hacksaw
