As the summer crowds disperse and the scorching heat fades away, what better time is there to vacation in New York City? The onset of autumn in the Big Apple brings mild temperatures and an old tradition of street festivals and parades.  And on Sunday October 5th, the borough of Brooklyn proudly hosts its 34th annual Atlantic Antic Street Festival.

Often referred to as the ‘mother’ of all street fairs in New York, the Atlantic Antic spans 10 blocks from 4th Avenue to Hicks Street and three neighborhoods, passing through Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill and Cobble Hill. Fortunately, New York Habitat has several convenient rental accommodations in Brooklyn for all who wish to partake in the festivities.

One of New York City’s most culturally diverse affairs; vendors of the Atlantic Antic Street Festival showcase cuisine and merchandise from all over world, bringing Italian, Moroccan, and Indian (to name a few) cultures to the streets of Brooklyn.  The fair also includes live music and performances which are just as diverse, ranging from country and jazz to belly dancing and rock and roll. While enjoying all that the festival has to offer, shoppers may also peruse the vintage and trendy boutiques that line Atlantic Avenue.
