The fifth annual Taste Williamsburg Greenpoint event happened on Sunday and it could not have been a better day for it.Brilliant sunshine, smiling faces, great music, totally manageable lines (mostly you just had to hover for a moment before getting a taste of something incredible) and best of all a whole load of ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FOOD AND DRINK!

All stall-holders were contributing their goodies for free to benefit the The Northside Town Hall Community and Cultural Center and they certainly pulled out all the stops to wow the crowds with their top-notch fare.

There were WAY too many fantastic treats to mention them all, but here’s photographic evidence of some of the highlights.
