The LES Pickle Day that was already rescheduled for November 4 has now officially been cancelled, due to the havoc that Sandy wreaked on the ‘hood.

From the Lower East Side BID:

The loss of power, combined with spotty cell phone service in the area, makes for less than desirable circumstances to execute a three-block event.  It’s definitely a shame because we were certainly looking forward to this neighborhood celebration, but right now residents and business owners are going to be focused on getting everything back in businesses, which makes perfect sense.

Once this Sandy dust settles, and we can all get back to work, we ideally would like to plan some sort of recovery and perhaps pickle-inspired event for the neighborhood.

As always, we will keep you posted on any pickle events in the making.
