New Yorkers like their Pickles

Yesterday was the 7th annual International pickle fest on the Lower East Side where New Yorkers lined up for blocks for free pickles and consumned over 50,000 of the things.  The area used to be the center of the pickle industry 100 years ago when immigrants dreamed of one day owning their own pickle carts.  Geez, people here REALLY love their pickles (insert obvious jokes).
