Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Street Fair on Third Avenue

It's street fair and festival season again in New York. Each weekend, numerous street fairs take place in different parts of the city giving New Yorkers and tourists an opportunity to sample food, shop for clothes, accessories, plants and other items, enjoy chair massages and live entertainment. These photos were taken from yesterday's Manhattan Chamber of Commerce community benefit street fair on Third Avenue from 66th to 86th Streets. The purpose of these popular street fairs is to support a wide-range of community programs in Community Board District 8. Each year, event proceeds are used to support a wide range of community-based non-profit projects. The schedule for street fairs for June can be found in this website.

Hi there - I hope you had a nice weekend! I'm Alicia from - we just love your blog, and we're interested in working with interesting and active bloggers like yourself - providing free tickets and tours, in exchange for a review of your experience with our tickets/tours on your blog. We'd really love to have you review our Empire State Building Obvservatory tickets, Top of the Rock Observation Deck tickets, or NY Water Taxi tickets.

It's great to get a glimpse of the city we all love, with our tickets allowing you to bypass those long lines we definitely don't love! You can read about them at,, and

We're hoping to connect with talented bloggers like yourself and develope a relationship, with us providing free tickets and tours to NYC holiday insider events like our Macy's Day Parade festivities and our exclusive Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting party. Let us know if there's anything we can do to make this happen!

Thanks so much, and we do hope to work with you! :)
