EAST HARLEM AND THE DANCE OF THE GIGLIO!

East Harlem and the Dance of the Giglio! (EAST HARLEM, MANHATTAN)

Sunday, August 8, 2021

The Dance of the Giglio is a tradition among New York's Italian community that dates back to the late 19th century... but in Italy it dates back even more centuries! We will incorporate a visit to the site of this "dance" with delicious tastings in the neighborhood, starting with tastes of West Africa and moving on to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Italy and France!

Giglio is Italian for lily, and it's an important symbol in the story of the saints who are celebrated. The so-called giglio structure is a multi-ton tower carried by over 100 "lifters" on a wooden platform that ALSO features a brass band! You have to see it to believe it - and it's great fun. I guarantee that this year the celebration will be cathartic after our many months of being indoors and not interacting with each other! Be ready for joy!

Dyker Heights, Brooklyn

Dyker Heights, Holiday Lights (Dyker Heights, Brooklyn)

Saturday, December 18, 2021

You've heard about the lights - they're extraordinary! Now see them with Noshwalks, combining a great food experience to keep you full and warm both before and after we see the lights. We’ll start with cannoli at an old-time bakery, have some Guatemalan specialties, then stop at a block of Italian markets where we’ll taste home-made mozzarella, prosciutto bread and olives, and then head towards the famed blocks of Dyker heights where there seems to be a great competition to find out which house has the most elaborate decorations. After our roundabout, we’ll stop at another great bakery to warm ourselves sup and finish at a wonderful pizzeria for Italian specialties. (The owners usually also put out holiday cookies, amaretto and whiskey, and request a modest donation if you choose to partake.) There’s one more treat before we conclude the tour, but I’m not revealing it here. This tour also stops at a supermarket with several sections of well-priced Italian specialties. As with all Noshwalks, we recommend that you bring a backpack with space for purchases!
