Ah, the good old summer block party. A New York City nabe wouldn’t be the same without one, especially when it’s the real old-school neighborhood kind, where the residents and business owners of a particular block get a permit, close off the street and pitch in for free food, drink and good times. But no block party is complete without a sound system and a couple of DJs. At this recent party in Nolita, on the stretch of Spring St. between Elizabeth St. and the Bowery, these DJs were spinning all kinds of tunes–dirty rock, classic hip hop, as well as cheesy 80’s dance pop.
