NYC: Easter promenade

Bill Cunningham, photojournalist for The New York Times:

One of New York's really grand showcases of street fashion, or costumes, whichever way you wanna call it, but it's fun and it's joyful, and it's Easter Parade on 5th Avenue. In point of fact, it never was a parade, it was always a promenade, since its founding after the Civil War when the robber barrons built their mansions on 5th Avenue and it was a promenade of the families going and coming from Easter Sunday Services.




I saw a few really fantastic men, I would call them dandies, and the new in the headdress department - well they were a whimsical takeoff on the financial crisis in the country with a theme of putting your nest egg in one basket - at any rate there were three headdress wearers.
