London Calling: ‘Terrace’ Street Fair Set for Sept. 28


Every year, the classy pack rats of London Terrace Gardens kick their spare wares to just beyond the curb — and every year, like clockwork, we make the observation that this annual event is gloriously bereft of funnel cakes, overpriced lemonade, threadbare sheets and tube socks of dubious aesthetic value. Held on Sat., Sept. 28, on 24th St. (btw. 9th & 10th Aves.), the London Terrace Street Fair is a 10am-5pm rain-or-shine happening where neighbors sell to neighbors and strangers are gently discouraged from haggling (it only slows things down). That policy is as practical as it is altruistic: proceeds from “the best little street fair in New York” benefit the London Terrace Tenants Association. As of Chelsea Now’s press deadline, spaces were still available for vendors. To be one of the well-screened 160+ participants, you don’t have to live in London Terrace — but you do have to contact Rick, at LTTAstreetfair@aol.com.
