El Barrio—Lively Scene in August

Back to articles


El Barrio on a Saturday in August is a riot of color. Salsa music — recorded and live — is playing on almost every corner. People congregate outside, on stoops, in the streets, in small parks and large schoolyards. They are proud of their neighborhood and friendly. 116th Street hums with life, and stores are packed. I found the color-mad street scene irresistible.
