September is perhaps the best time of year in New York City. The summer tourists from out of town dwindle and New Yorkers who spend their summers on Fire Island, in The Hamptons and down the Jersey Shore return. Baseball pennant races heat up (not for Met fans this year) and football season gets going. It is also the time when people start planning their pilgrimage to Mulberry Street for the Feast of San Gennaro. If everyone is a little Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, then everyone is surely a little Italian during San Gennaro.
The 91st Annual Feast of San Gennaro will be held in Manhattan’s Little Italy for 11 days, from September 14, through September 24, 2017, on the streets of historic Little Italy. A stroll through the feast with friends and family is a guaranteed good time for all.
I have been coming to The Feast since I was a teenager and now I live right around the corner from it. The aroma of sausage and peppers, seafood and fried zeppole are in the air and the sounds of people having fun are everywhere. Memories are waiting to be made. Come on down!
