Court Street Festival This Sunday

Whatever your plans for this week-end, don't miss the Court Street Festival on Sunday, May 4th. Court Street will be closed from Union Street to 9th Street to make room for about 200 vendors. There will be children's rides and music and lots of food. It starts at 12 and will go till 6 Pm.
See you there?

Sunday is also the day for the Five Borough Bike tour, so getting around the neighborhood will be a bit difficult. The 76th Precinct has issued the following traffic alert for Sunday, May 4, 2014:

Please be advised that traffic in our area will be affected by following two separate events this weekend, both on Sunday, May 4, 2014:

1. Five Borough Bike Tour - Cyclists will be travelling throughout all five boroughs causing Street and Highway closures. In our area, Atlantic Avenue, between the BQE Eastbound Entrance ramps and the dead end at the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Columbia Street, between Atlantic Avenue and Congress Street will be closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic from approximately 8:00 am, through 3:30 pm.

2. Court Street Festival - Court Street, between Union Street and W. 9th Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for the street fair from approximately 8:00 am, through 8:00 pm, to accommodate set-up and clean-up. Additionally, all side streets leading into the festival route on Court Street, from Smith Street and from Clinton Street, will be closed to vehicular traffic. The B57 Bus that runs southbound on Court Street will be re-routed via a left turn off Court Street onto Union Street, a right turn onto 3rd Avenue, a right turn onto W. 9th Street, a left turn back onto Court Street and then will continue onto it's regular route. It will make all the corresponding stops along 3rd Avenue.

Please plan ahead accordingly and allow extra time if you intend on driving this Sunday in the affected areas.

Whole lotta junk being sold there. Felt more like the Canal street fair than Court street. Guess the local stores dont want to be a part of this? Has it always been like this? The gray and chilly weather didn't help I'm sure.
