NYC – Bastille Day – east 60th Street

Bastille Day East 60th Street

Unfortunately, we can’t all celebrate Bastille Day before the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower, but there are plenty of ways to honor France on its Independence Day right here in New York City. One special way was  held at E 60th St between Fifth and Lexington Avenues where the street fair featured live music, arts and crafts, prize drawing and face painting. You could also find your favorite French treats like “crêpes, éclairs and fromages” to satisfy your stomach and celebrate French Independence.

My afternoon started at 57th Street and Fifth Avenue. My good Blogger-Friend  Theadora  . from Paris, often reminds me of the unique and beautiful window displays that are presented in both NYC and Paris.

On a very French day, where better to start than Bergdof-Goodmen.

The windows have stainless glass mirrors. You are looking at the Plaza Hotel. Army Plaza and Central Park -although backwards.

While the event was excellent, it suffered, somewhat, from too many people. The street was very hard to move through. The food was plentiful and delicious. All in all a very festive event
