There was a very interesting French festival on Sunday called Bastille Day taking place along 60th Street on the East side of town. There were Can-Can dancers, information booths (about the French), food and treats to enjoy. There were plenty of people there and a friend and I enjoyed some really great crepes.
From there we ended up at the bottom of Central Park on 5th Avenue and 59th Street where there is an interesting new structure that people can both look at and interact with.
Additionally, 60th Street is beautiful street and is great to take a stroll along! See below for some of the views it offers:
