¡FELIZ DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS! November 1 is the Day of the Dead, and our local Mexican-owned small businesses invite you to celebrate. Head to Panaderia San Agustin for pan de muertos, 116th Street Flowers for cempasuchitl (marigolds), Azteca Western for papel picado (cut paper flags), and any of the restaurants below for some of East Harlem’s best Mexican food.
At our Open Street on Pleasant Avenue: The Manhattan Borough President’s office will be on site to create Dia de los Muertos community art with kids (12-3 p.m.). We’ll also be joined for a performance by traditional dance group Danza Tolteca-Chichimeca @grupo_tolteca_chichimeca_ny (1:30 p.m.), thanks to our friends at El Museo del Barrio.
