In the late-evening heat of last Monday night, a group of over-jubilant Hare Krishnas was out singing their gospel and distributing flyers at the corner of First Avenue and First Street. The cymbals, accordian, and chanting penetrated the summertime air for just a short time, before the crew retired to the Bhakti Cafe at 25 First Avenue.
Not surprisingly, though, most people within earshot paid them no mind.
The Bhakti Cafe opened at 25 First Avenue in early June, and is part of the larger Bhakti Center. Yoga classes and other events take place on the upper floors.
