With the Orchard Street pedestrian mall basically dead, DayLife will again continue its quest to revive the Sunday mall trend. Albeit in a more “suburban” manner. The periodic event – organized by the Lower East Side BID – is set to return for a third season this Sunday, June 1.

As with previous summers, DayLife will roll out the astroturf and unbox the pseudo-pushcarts along the three-block span between East Houston and Delancey. It’ll be an afternoon of programming geared toward foodies, fashion, and music.

DayLife remains a band-aid for the pedestrian mall, though.
