Staten Island Waterfront Festival 2011
Photo Highlights of the 2011 Waterfront Festival
|This year's Waterfront Festival, for the first time presented by Mayor
Michael Bloomberg and Borough President James P. Molinaro, was a wild
success. In search for the appropriate wording to describe this years'
one-of-a-kind event, I can't think of a better description than the one
offered by my friend Tony, who just got off the festival area right
before we arrived: "It is what it is!" A statement I heartily endorse.
There were jewelery and toy vendors and the ethnic food line-up
ranged from zeppole to pizza. There was also ice cream. Here are the
Larger than life-sized Macy's balloons.
The other highlight: Traditional pizza eating contest.
Locals mix with natives.
And here, we were lucky enough to run into the great chieftain himself.
The elected full-body, three-term representative of all peoples of
Staten Island, Borough President James P. Molinaro.
Clearly, we didn't only elect this man for his effective hands-on
approach of all things local but also for his witty sense of dressing
adequately. Here, we see him with a blue checkered shirt and bright white
semi-transparent synthetic leisure trousers. A black leather belt
sports a black cellphone holder that allows for a quick draw.
After all, the man might be expecting a phone call.
We'll be back in 2012!
