Organizing one of Manhattan\'s most famous street markets, the San Genaro feast in Little Italy, is obviously not as easy as it used to be.
\"There are no Italian suppliers now,\" said Mort Berkowitz . \" He is in charge of the event, known as one of the kings of the street fair in New York City.
At 2014, to make sure there is enough Italian flavor, sir.
Berkowitz has a bakery for 350-pound cannoli.
Two years later, there was a huge cake.
\"It\'s 6 feet high and weighs nearly 10,000 pounds,\" he said . \"Mr.
Berkowitz has been organizing street markets since 1973
Longer than I live.
During that time, he survived many storms.
Not everyone likes the city\'s street market about 200 times a year, he said.
People complain about the transportation, the fees charged by the organizers and the lack of creativity from the suppliers.
What do street market organizers do?
\"We have big and vocal competitions . \"
Burkowitz pointed out.
\"I\'m doing the blueberry race in Tenek.
I did Pizza on Ninth Avenue.
But what are the biggest challenges facing street markets? Rain, Mr. Berkowitz said.
\"I think the climate is changing,\" he said . \"

Probably not in a week, but on weekends.
\"New York City had 31% more rainfall last year than normal.
Five of the city\'s 10 wettest years have occurred since 2003.
\"Last spring, it rained every Saturday or Sunday between April and June, and people were crushed . \"Berkowitz said.
