The Carnival Comes to Town!
Today saw Family Carnival arrive to the Oval! We had a circus before, so why not a carnival? Actually, it seemed a nice affair for kids and parents. I expected more crowds, but since families are in the decrease here, with single Urban Young Professionals and students becoming more the norm, it's understandable that one wouldn't see as many families as probably would have been present even ten years ago. Music was playing, but not blasting throughout the Oval. The food offered was something First Lady Michelle Obama would not approve off, however--sugary and fatty.
Of course this is one more event to be used to sell the place to prospective tenants. (Warning signs about filming were placed about the Oval.) The positive element: At least such a promo will be directed at people with families, something Stuy Town needs to see an increase in.
