Get yourself to the Greek — the Greek Festival, that is.
Yes, it’s that time of the year when Schermerhorn Street becomes New York’s Little Athens, thanks to the minions at the St. Constantine and Helen Cathedral.
“We’re trying to capture that spirit of the Greek social life,” said Michelle Tampakis, chairwoman of the festival, which runs from June 6 to 12. “It brings together families to eat, to be outside, to enjoy music, to dance, and just to socialize.”
As always, there’ll be rides for the kids, plenty of Greek music and, most important, Greek delicacies. Remember, they invented the edible complex, so you know this is great stuff.
“All the food is made by us,” said Tampakis. “We make it in our own kitchens, you know, Greek ladies with their traditional recipes that have been done over and over again.”
Greek Festival at Sts. Constantine and Helen Cathedral [64 Schermerhorn St. between Court Street and Boerum Place in Downtown, (718) 634-0595], June 6-12 from 11 am-1 am.
