Street fairs in NYC are sort of predictable – you know, tube socks and various meats-on-a-stick. The 5th Avenue street fair in Park Slope does one better because many of the local restaurants in the neighborhood expand beyond their storefronts and onto the streets, offering street food that makes it possible to eat your way through the 20 or so blocks by merely spending a few bucks here and there. Besides, it’s near our apartment so even if we want to avoid it, we can’t. We didn’t take photos of the sushi handrolls and ribs from Blue Ribbon or the $1 samosas because they were gone in a flash, but here are the girls enjoying the more typical street fair snacks, hotdogs and kabobs.
Oh, and these photos were taken with my new Canon T1i, which I finally pulled the trigger on late one night last week (remember that commercial back in the 90s – the one where the guy dances nervously around, then gingerly pushes the buy button on his computer and immediately dances nervously away? I don’t remember what the commercial was for, but this is how I felt). I’m still learning how to use it, but so far, this camera rocks, despite the stupid “Rebel” logo which I wish they’d retire.
