Nolita (and LIta) residents will reek of sausage and zeppole for the next ten nights - it's San Gennaro time! Part Heartburn Row, part boardwalk midway, tonight, you'll be able to waste money as you try to win a Nemo plush and stuff yourself with Mozzarepas galore. Gothamist hasn't heard many stories about how the NYPD is securing the area, but we guess that's because the NYPD is concentrating on the UN. Maybe the mobsters will keep the peace!

More information from the official San Gennaro site; the first parade will be on Saturday, 2PM, when the statue of San Gennaro is taken from the Most Precious Blood Church. And Gothamist on last year's festival, from security to photos.
