The City of New Rochelle is partnering with Streetfaris.org for New Rochelle’s Second Annual Street Fair.

So who is in charge of promoting and advertising this second annual event? Most likely the same people that didn’t promote the first annual fair very well. Where are the signs, the banners, newspaper/media coverage, and the radio and TV ads?
