NYC – Alphabet City – Loisada Festival

Loisada Festival Parade


This weekend it was nice to visit the area of Manhattan called Alphabet City. It is different from the center of Manhattan, in the sense that it is more quiet and without the presence of tourists. There is not any major attraction to see, so you can go for a walk and enjoy this characteristic neighborhood.


I went to see the annual Loisada Festival Parade, a colorful and fun-filled event. This part of the city in tucked away east of 1st Avenue and south of 14th Street. Some people think it is the last real neighborhood in Manhattan. Low rise buildings, community gardens and funky places to eat or drink.

Well, enough from the Chamber of Commerce, here are some photos of the parade and festival. I have been going to many NYC parades and his one was the most lively and fun. unfortunately, my video was not working but I hope my photos will show you that the participant were most young adults having fun.
