It was, as promised, “kind of a big dill.” The LES Pickle Day returned yesterday afternoon as part of the DayLife Festival, and the crowd turned out in droves.

Lots of local food and fashion vendors set up shop (or rather, rolled out pushcarts), which stretched down Orchard Street from Houston to Delancey. The streets were filled with live music, croquet, a Halloween contest for kids, yoga, DJ lessons and a home pickling contest.

The choices of pickles, or pickle-centric foods, were pretty creative this year. We spied everything from Guss’ Pickles on a stick to Lush Candy’s pickled brittle crunch. We sampled some non-pickle foods including codfish fritters from Spur Tree, rice balls from The Japanese Deli and some pretty amazing bbq from Georgia’s. We also fell in love with the Bill Murray coasters from Urban Cricket and the fab gemstone pendants from Yaf Sparkle.

Imagine if this 96-Story ‘RiverArch’ on the LES Stained the Skyline

Given the gold rush mentality on the Lower East Side waterfront, it’s not surprising to see another bunkers development proposed.

The 96-story RiverArch would house thousands of apartments, a […]
