Sunday at noon, for the second week running, the Lower East Side Business Improvement District is using the “Imagining the Lowline” exhibition on Essex Street for the return of the DayLife series (the BID officially endorses the Lowline). The “pushcarts, food, and fashion” will be headed inside much like the local street vendors in the days of yore. Expect to see Lost Weekend, Meatball shop, melt, Christian V. Chocolate, and Pop Karma.

On September 30, however, DayLife will hop back over to Orchard Street with more than thirty vendors in tow (listed below). Based on previous attempts, do you think DayLife should be a regular occurrence?
