There wasn't much novel or interesting among the trinkets for sale at yesterday's Upper West Side street fair (72nd to 86th in New York) -- but some of the food and some of the booth performers were diverting. No, I didn't try a deep fried oreo -- the item looked a lot like a fried artichoke from Castroville but even the thought was cloying.
The guy selling some kind of mop was energetic ...
as was the man selling a "salsa maker as seen on TV."
This Obama fan was talkative, while the Hillary folks seemed to be just going through the motions.
This gent looked a little sad and lonely, but he was there.
But the real attraction was the food -- how's that for some turkey legs?
