Photo Essay: San Ganarro Festival, Little Italy
This weekend I met up with my friend Tatiana at her favorite New York festival. Tati has been going to San Ganarro in Little Italy since she was a little girl. San Ganarro is an eleven day festival for all the senses. It felt as if all of New York descended upon the ever shrinking New York neighborhood to partake in religious processions, musical performances and the plethora of food. One could cut the Italian pride with a knife as cigar and sweet sausage wafted smoke up my nose. I liked the large photographic displays of New York streets from the early 1900’s juxtaposed with what they look like today. Festival patrons toted sausage, peppers and onions sandwiches as the munched on biscotti’s. Here are a few shots I took as I carefully balanced my cannoli.
