Love this street, with the many italian restaurants. We ate at the Café Napoli, and I like a lot the service. I be curious about the Feast of San Gennaro in Setember, hope someday I could have vacation to visit this feast.
Mulberry is between Baxter and Mott streets. It runs north to south through the old center of Little Italy. At the southern end of Mulberry, the street merges into New York's Chinatown, here the street is lined with Chinese green grocers, butcher stores and fish mongers.
During the Italian-American festival of the Feast of San Gennaro each September, the entire street is blocked off to vehicular traffic to make way for the street fair. The San Gennaro Feast began in 1926 and continues today. It is the largest Italian-American Festival in New York and possibly the United States.
Mulberry St History
The street was listed on maps of the area since at least 1755. The "Bend" in Mulberry, in which the street changes direction from southeast to northwest to a northerly direction, was to avoid the wetlands surrounding the Collect Pond. Mulberry Street, during the period of the American Revolution, was usually referred to as "Slaughter-house Street", named for the slaughterhouse of Nicholas Bayard on what is now the southwest corner of Mulberry and Bayard streets until the summer of 1784, when it was ordered to be removed to Corlaer's Hook.

A good representation here of Little Italy, Andre - nice bright colors and decorations, with a good array of flags and banners throughout. A nice POV, too, using the cars as a diagonal line through the shot - cars are such annoying elements in city life shots, but you've integrated these. I like the green of the fire escape at left especially. Thanks!

A beautiful composition of this street so full of Latin atmosphere in the big apple, ideal these typical houses with stairs and many banners, giving a touch of color and joy.
Have a nice weekend.

E aí, vc xingou bastante?! Se não, deveria. As leis nos EUA são muito respeitadas e caso não o faça, multas e tudo mais! Assim, quando voltar, xingue bastante!!!
Adorei a foto!
P.S.: Não sou fã de cerveja não... tomo em ocasiões especiais apenas. Nada contra! rsrsrsrs Sim, já ouvi falar da "Brejas", mas, certamente, nunca fui lá. Campinas, assim como Ribeirão Preto, tem uma população que curte bastante as loiras geladas!
