The Atlantic Antic, one of New York largest street fairs, returns on Oct. 3rd. Hear about the diverse commercial, social, civic and architectural merits of this great old Brooklyn thoroughfare.

It has two distinct Arabic shopping centers, an array of specialty shops, old and new residences, civic and social service facilities. Also view various mosques and churches that reflect the diverse ethnic history of the area. Walk parallel streets in the landmark districts that contain some of New York’s finest rows of pre Civil War houses and preview various eating establishments. See a former newspaper printing plant, remnants of a brewery, sights connected to Native American ironworkers and lots more before the festivities begin.
