      Also on Sunday, Sept 16 (1pm-6pm) is the West Side County Fair at Pier 1 in Riverside Park South. It was supposed to occur last Sunday but it rained so this Sunday is the rain date.

      And I believe the Columbus Ave Festival (street fair) will occur on Sunday as well from 68th-86th Streets.

      Let’s not forget our Columbus Avenue Fall Festival from West 66th Street to West 96th Street on Columbus Ave., Sunday September 16!!!
      This will be the last of the block festivals in New York City for 2018

        There is the potential for a really great street fair
        However at present it’s the same old unhealthy
        food and Trinkets and junk

      Also, the West 104th Street Yard Sale, now in its 24th year will be held on Saturday, 9/29 between West End and Riverside. Come for the music, bargains, and books.
