Along with neighborhood partners, the festival celebrates the folklife of Eastern European Jewish, Chinese, and Puerto Rican communities in this corner of New York City through music, dance, crafts, ritual practices, foodways, and other creative expressions. Our festival is a place of immersive learning, providing a meaningful appreciation of difference and shared identity. We aim to foster cross-cultural communication as we honor the spirit of this ever-changing neighborhood and open a dialogue about the immigrant experience in New York City today.””

About the Workmen’s Circle

The Workmen’s Circle powers progressive Jewish identity through Jewish cultural engagement, Yiddish language learning, multigenerational education, and social justice activism. For over a century we have provided this 360-degree approach to Jewish identity-building. Through contemporary cultural programs, joyful holiday celebrations, strategic social justice campaigns, vibrant Yiddish language classes, interactive educational experiences and more, we connect Jewish adults, kids and families of all affiliations with their cultural heritage, working to build a better and more beautiful world for all.

The following is from last year’s posting so’s to help give you an idea as to what to expect:

(New York, N.Y.)—The Workmen’s Circle fourth annual “Taste of Jewish Culture” Street Festival, illustrating that “Diversity is Delicious,” returns this Father’s Day, featuring dozens of food purveyors putting their original ethnic spins on traditional Jewish foods, on Sunday, June 17 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sixth Avenue between 48th and 49th Streets (rain or shine). The festival will include music, dance, and family-friendly activities, including arts-and-crafts.

Participants to date include: Bonsai Kakigori; Rebecca’s Cake Pops; Danny Macaroons; La Newyorkina; Krafted by Karli; What’s the Dillaz; Harlem Seafood Soul; Ben’s Kosher Deli; Zabari Catering; P.O.P. Cake Shop; Sylvia Fallas “Cooking for my People”; Paprika Kosher; Breads Bakery; Raw BK Organic Kitchen; Zola Bakes; Mysttik Masaala; Wandering Que; Gluten Free.Sy, and StuFFfed.

Among the global mashups of the day will be: Bonsai Kakigori’s Land of Milk and Honey kakigori; La Newyorkina’s babka ice cream sandwiches; What’s the Dillaz’s brisket quesadillas; and Krafted by Karli’s sweet potato and beet latke. And adding some pizazz, the Workmen’s Circle will be spritzing up egg creams all day – in fact, all dads can stop by to get a free egg cream.

Food won’t be the only thing on the menu: the festival will feature performances by New York Klezmer Series All Stars, and dancing demonstrations by Cantor Sarah Myerson.

The Workmen’s Circle is a social justice organization powering progressive Jewish identity through Jewish cultural engagement, Yiddish language learning, multi-generational education, and transformational activism. Launched by the Workmen’s Circle in 2014, the festival is part of the non-profit’s year-round Taste of Jewish Culture event series, which includes hands-on workshops, walking tours, tastings, film screenings, and book discussions. Festivals have drawn upwards of 15,000 attendees each year.

Governors Island Late Fridays and Saturdays

OH YES!

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Visit this page at the official site for Ferry information.

The photo at the top of this page was taken at the end of the sunset hour as the night sky crept in. We took many photos like this during our visit.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Governors Island Late Fridays and Saturdays

OH YES!

Fridays and Saturdays
May 24 – August 31, 2019
Open until 10:00 pm

We got the chance to experience late days at the Island last year and so enamored was I with the whole thing that I went two days in a row. Luckily they were absolutely stunning days! You wouldn’t believe how excited I just got when I discovered that, yep, they’re offering this up so early in the season. Had imagined them not doing this until a bit later but we’ll take it!

The Ferry leaves from the historic Battery Maritime Building, located at 10 South Street in Lower Manhattan just north of the Staten Island Ferry. It’s a short and cheap ride across the waters.

If you’re a photographer like yours truly then you’ll really get a kick out of the chance to capture the setting sun as well as the Lower Manhattan skyline during the blue hour and evening. Yes, of course, you can do so on other days when the island’s open to all, but come on! This is a great chance to capture it all under a night sky. I plan to return again, and again and again and again. Will you?

Below, would be yet another panoramic shot taken there as well as a photo taken in the afternoon.
