On a sunny September day I walk along the crowded streets of Little Italy. It is the Feast of San Gennaro and the crush of people almost make it impossible to walk. The barrage of scents attack my nose – fresh tomatoes, sausages, cheese, baked goods, and even seafood I gingerly walk by tiny dining tables set on the sidewalks by cafes where people sip wine and dine on Italian dishes. I keep it light with a cold lemonade and a slice of delicious New York style pizza. I watch the colorful floats ride down the parade route under a gorgeous sky. I am happy to spend a day in the city, but still thinking it would be better with some company.
