New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
The Hester Street Fair is an outdoor community market on the Lower East Side, specializing in handmade goods and artisanal food. HSF is a new hybrid incubator and launching pad for small, independent businesses and artists. Hundreds of vendors rotate over 60–90 spots every Saturday and Sunday to create one of the most dynamic outdoor events in New York City. Located at the intersection of Hester and Essex Streets, the Fair is open from 11am to 6pm every Saturday from April 26 through October 26 for their 2014 season.
