Happening - This Weekend

If you're around this weekend and in the mood for a little fun and games head on over to
Our Lady of Sorrow's Church Bazaar & Carnival.
Pitt Street between Stanton & Rivington Streets

Located on Pitt Street, an area of New York once known as little Germany, this church has served the lower east side community since it opened its doors in 1867. The parish still maintains a school and a number of out reach programs for those in need. The fair is a yearly event and the proceeds benefit both the church and the school programs run from there. There will be rides for the kids, games and food stalls. It starts on Friday, October 3rd, 4:00pm - 10pm, and runs both Saturday, October 4th and Sunday, October 5th from 11am until 11pm.

If you're not into the idea of a street fair make a point of passing this interesting NY landmark. The original building combines Victorian, Byzantine and Romanesque styles. Surrounded by tenement project buildings some of the awe it must have inspired in the late 1800's is lost, but if you stand south of it on Pitt Street and the sun is just right the sight of the spire and the statue atop it will still make you pause in admiration.
