International Flavors Abound: At the Ninth Avenue International Food Festival

NYC is deliciously diverse: With over 800 languages spoken in the city!

We are particularly fond of our place in the mix: Waterside may be the most international housing in Manhattan – with residents from over 62 countries.

And nowhere is the international flavor of of the city more obvious than in the abundance of amazing food around.

For one of the best bets to sample the most variety, head over to the upcoming Ninth Avenue International Food Festival.

It’s one the oldest – and largest – food festivals in the city.

“The 15-block gastronomic extravaganza features cuisine from Greece, Brazil, Italy, Morocco, Senegal, Ukraine, Thailand and everywhere in between, with music and dancing to match,” describes The Citiview.

All ready to party – and partake.

It’s now their fourth fest in NYC! This one has exclusive desserts as well as “a savory Salt Bar to ‘cleanse your palette'” and you’ll also get “access to an outdoor deck on the water with panoramic views of Manhattan”.

We have that too – so if you bring back some desserts, you can enjoy them on the Plaza!
