Scenes From LES Apple Day 2011

It was a gorgeous fall day on Orchard Street yesterday–perfect weather for celebrating Apple Day on the Lower East Side . We’ve got coverage of the Apple Pie Eating Contest and some great photos after the jump:

    totally retarded!  the neighborhood has changed……it reminds me of the san gennaro festival on mulberry…. totally disgusting people wandering around, most people in the neighborhood abandoned the block for the day………….yuch!

    Actually, it was a lot of fun and a perfect opportunity for people in the neighborhood to support and learn more about local businesses. Exactly the opposite of the San Gennaro festival.
