Scenes from the London Terrace Street Fair

The 27th Annual London Terrace Street Fair was a smashing success. Friends, neighbors, and visitors from around the world leisurely traversed the length of ‪West 24th Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues in Manhattan, shopping for a few things to beautify the home, or just a memento of the day. There were vendors of arts, crafts, clothing and textiles, jewelry, vinyl records, and anything a person could want to collect.

Local elected officials attended the Street Fair and mingled with their constituency, as they do every year. Underneath a canopy of trees spanning a city block, attendees celebrated the ending of summer, and the beginning of the autumn season. Some visitors said it was better than the famous Brimfield Antique Flea Market!

When asked how she thought things went, Inge Ivchenko, president of the London Terrace Tenants Association (LTTA organizes the event), noted her favorite part of the day was watching the kids get their faces painted. “It’s all about passing on the torch to the young ones,” she said. “In my humble opinion, it went quite swimmingly.”

The 28th Annual London Terrace Street Fair will take place ‪on September 12, 2020. To learn more about the LTTA and find info about becoming a vendor at next year’s Street Fair, click here.
