Sixth Avenue Street Fair: Fourteen Blocks of Food and Shopping

 Today I'm feeling way better than I did two days ago. Still I knew I shouldn't over exert myself and decided not to stray far. What better way to spend a warm morning in New York City than under the cooling shade of the buildings along Sixth Avenue for a street fair that stretches from 42nd to 56th Streets. This fair even leads you right in front of world famous Radio City Music Hall.

Though many of the vendors are selling the same stuff every block at least you'll never go hungry with food sellers everything from gyros to fruit smoothies. I opted to continue eating healthy and staying hydrated by buying not one but two watermelon fruit smoothes along the way ($4 each).

From artwork to cell phone covers to popcorn, there's something at these fairs that'll peak your interest if not encourage you to open your wallet or purse.

These fairs that closes long stretches of major thoroughfares in the city happen regularly and an online search can inform you of the time and location of each event. The website NYC Tourist keeps and updated schedule that you can view by clicking HERE.
