NYC Street Fairs: Variable

I don't usually go out of my way to attend the seemingly ubiquitous fair-weather-time street fairs in NYC, but today I had a couple of things to search for that I knew would be plentiful at a street fair.  The street fair season has been extended so much -- NYC collects some significant fees -- that now I think they are put on throughout the year except in the winter. You can check on locations and times of street fairs at NYC Street Fairs Info.

There are always numerous vendors of sun glasses, costume jewelry, dried spices, refrigerator magnets, handmade soaps, purses, house plants, funnel cakes, Thai food, cut fruit, Italian sausages, arepas (grilled corn cakes stuffed with cheese), roasted corn on the cob, etcetera.  If you are in need of inexpensive items in any of these categories or want to stroll through a street fair munching on street food among the masses, NYC street fairs may be just for you.  By the way, this is also a dog-friendly activity.
