There may be as many as 25,000 people visiting the village on Nyack Street Fair Sunday. The good news is that the first 5,000 of them won’t need parking and won’t be here for very long.

Cyclists competing in the Gran Fondo NY 100 mile ride from the GWB to Bear Mountain and back will pass through the village between 7:45 and 845a. The Nyack Street Fair, sponsored by ACADA, Nyack’s Art, Craft & Antiques Dealers Association, kicks off at 10a.
