NYC Apple Day at Orchard Street

New York City Apple Day is a unique street festival where visitors can experience all things apple related. Right in the heart of the Big Apple, visitors will feel like “urban farmers” with countless varieties of apples – many transported from upstate New York from farms including Red Jacket Orchards. The day also includes many of the Lower East Side’s culinary venues (all getting in the apple spirit and incorporating the ingredient into their cuisine) retailers, cultural institutions, live music, and more.

New York City Apple Day – Apples on Orchard pays tribute to the neighborhood’s historical connection to apples. The Lower East Side was an apple orchard farm in the 1700s, owned by a French farmer named Delancey.

The Lower East Side Business Improvement District will sponsor The Apple Day National Apple Pie Eating Championship at 2:00 p.m. where a new National Apple Pie eating record will be established. All Pro Eating Promotions ( will sanction the competitive eating contest and handle all contest related activities. The contest will award prize money to the top three finishers in the amounts of $500.00, $300.00 and $100.00. An additional $100.00 will be awarded to the highest finishing local resident.

Hey you guys….its that time again….Nook Book Fridays….today’s free selection is by Ana Gobersen, titled “Bright Young Things.

Lust, jealousy, glamour, ambition, heartbreak: In New York City, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Godbersen’s rich, evocative writing brings flapper-era Gotham to life through the eyes of two small-town girls trying to make their way in the Big Apple. This fun romp follows the young women as they celebrate in speakeasies, strive for stardom, and side-step an occasional scandal. The plucky protagonists would be at home in today’s New York social scene, but the 1920s-period detail makes for a unique and nostalgic adventure.

Hurry and download this free book as it will only be available today.
