Arab-esque

Last Saturday was the 8th Annual Arab American Cultural Street Festival which is the official kick-off to New York City’s Annual Arab Heritage Week. NAAP-NY has been organizing this street festival since its inception.

The festivities included an interesting and diverse array of live music & dance, food(of course) and several businesses/activities from all parts of the city and the Arab world.
