This Saturday was Yorkville Buy Local‘s Small Business Saturday Walking Tour of the Upper East Side. Yorkville Buy Local is a project I co-founded with fellow East Side Democratic District Leader Kim Moscaritolo to draw attention to some of the fun local businesses that make our neighborhood unique. We partnered with Community Board 8’s Small Business Committee and a number of neighborhood establishments as part of the tour.
It was a great event. Our group got to sample local shops, learn about their history and events and connections to the neighborhood, and then we all grabbed some beers afterwards. You can see a map and list of the establishments we visited below. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year!
