In case you've missed it thus far, here's a quick video summary of the battle between the boutiques of Nolita and the San Gennaro festival organizers of Little Italy. Mulberry Street's stores want the street fair to stop at Kenmare Street so that they don't have to contend with fried dough stands on their doorsteps. And they haven't exactly been won over by the organizers' suggestion that they all team up on a fashion show during the fair. Can't watch a video right now? You can also catch up via Curbed's obsessive coverage. [WPIX; Curbed]
