All NYC Street fairs have become nothing but crapfests. Every one has the same garbage, and that's all it is. They have zero to do with the neighborhood that hosts them and clog up the streets with unnecessary junk. Why would you want to go to one of these junkfests? I'm grateful for this list so I know what places to avoid on any given summer weekend in NYC!

Most of the fairs are the same, so content is pretty much what you would expect. Things being sold, food, drinks and crowds. No surprise there!

This is a great list but a bit of detail about what is actually HAPPENING at each festival would be good... the websites aren't much help.
