The Third Avenue Street Fair

The Third Avenue Street Fair was held on Sunday, September 11. I don't attend very many of these fairs; they don't usually have anything I'd want to buy. Still, it was one of my last chances to spend some time outdoors in the summer and anyway I desperately needed to find socks—you know, the dressy ones with the gold toes. So out I went.

The street fair covered Third Avenue from 67th Street to 86th Street.

Lady Liberty stands on her pedestal at 86th Street.

This unsigned poster image titled New York looks like the work of Ton Smits. The poster design deliberately imitates the New Yorker's logo without being a New Yorker image.

Still proudly for Bernie. The American Psycho! t-shirts may be inspired by a British New Statesman magazine cover.

In conclusion, there was not one damn sock for sale on Third Avenue.

Note:  Does anyone know the cover illustrator for the New Statesman's "American Psycho" image?
