Reliving The 18th Avenue Feast, One Youtube Video At A Time

The Feast is finished for 2012, but some of us are still living the dream. Take a look at ‘s indie hit, “Now That’s Italian!!” Made with just his iPhone and a soundtrack provided by Mimmo Carlomagno, this is a great effort from one of our locals.

Here’s what he writes:

A few blocks from us is one of the most famous Italian Feast’s in the country. The Santa Rosalia Feast, spreads the love across 10 blocks on 18th ave. in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Everyones Italian between 65th st & 75th st.!! lol… This was shot on a Thursday and there was a few venues closed, but I got what i could and had a blast doin it. Of corse we grabbed a few things from World famous “Lucy’s Sausage & Peppers” stand and made sure the party would continue after we got home. Heh… it did 🙂 – Please enjoy the Video, as you tap your feet to the joyful sounds of “Mimmo Carlomagno” and his cheerful song “Cori i preta” (to wich I own no rights and claim no monetary compensation for work done on this video) The video footage however is mine, and I’m happy to say that this is my FIRST video completely shot with the iPhone.

Nice job capturing the spirit of the feast llpoppajoell. Can’t wait until we can do it all again next year.
