To kick off the third annual Lower East Side History Month, co-sponsors by FABnyc and Downtown Art are again planning a community chalking event for Sunday and Monday. A “chalk about town,” you might say. LES Stories, as the two-day event is called, encourages participants to sketch trivia, memories, or random musings about the neighborhood in open spaces.
