Manhattan Street Festival Celebrates Co-Existence of Three Cultures
Dads filled up Sunday with food from around the world at an annual street festival on the Lower East Side.
The Museum at Eldridge Street hosted the "Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas festival," which featured Jewish, Puerto Rican, and Chinese cuisine.
"My daughter is both Jewish and Chinese, so we thought it would be perfect for her," one man said with his daughter.
Organizers said it was meant to celebrate the different communities that co-exist in the neighborhood.
Participants also enjoyed live music and learned how to make traditional foods like dumplings, empanadas, and challah bread.
