Feast of San Gennaro

Easy Access to Feast of San Gennaro from Stamford Apartments

Fall has arrived (yeah!) and this season promises to be chock-full of things to do and places to go near your Stamford apartment rentals. County Fairs, apple picking, new museum exhibits and plays opening at local theatres are just a few examples of some of the offerings residents of Downtown Stamford have to choose from. But one of the best regional events every September has to be the Feast of San Gennaro.  2011 marks the 85th year of this Feast; New York City’s longest-running, biggest and most revered outdoor festival in the United States. It started Thursday, Sept. 15, and runs through this Sunday, Sept. 25 on the streets of historic Little Italy.

More than one million people from the four corners of the globe are expected to participate in the annual Salute to the Patron Saint of Naples. Although this is an annual celebration of faith, the Feast of San Gennaro is known the world over for its festive atmosphere, an 11-day event featuring religious processions and colorful parades, free musical entertainment every day, a wide variety of ethnic food delicacies, charming restaurants and cafes and even a world-famous cannoli-eating competition!

Come and enjoy indoor and outdoor dining at 35 of Little Italy’s most famous Italian restaurants. The delicious food, the free musical entertainment that reflects Italian-American culture and heritage are all there. More than 300 licensed street vendors will be selling international foods, official Feast of San Gennaro, New York City and Little Italy souvenirs (what’s a trip to NYC without souvenirs?).

For the residents of our Stamford apartments at Morgan Manor, Hoyt-Bedford and The Townhouse, it’s even easier to go see and share in this celebration. Each of our Downtown Stamford apartment communities are less than a mile from the Stamford Train station. Express trains run every half hour and they’ll get you to Grand Central Station in 45 minutes. Then you can take the subway, hop on a downtown bus or take a cab to Little Italy.

The Feast runs along Mulberry Street, between Canal Street (on south) and Houston Street (on north).  You can check out their website for more details:  www.sangennaro.org. Sounds like fun – see you there!
