Since our new office is on 45th Street between Third & Second Aves, we discovered midtown offers more than you’d think on the weekends: Street fairs with lots of food, clothes, jewelry, and more. Coming to midtown on the weekend probably doesn’t sound like your idea of fun, but now it can be, especially if you are looking for fun activities for your kids, or you know, just because.

We accidentally stumbled upon the fair last week when we came to the office to do some work. (Did we mention we never stop working?) To our surprise, we realized these fairs happen all the time.
