The smell of sausage and zeppole wafting through Nolita has returned: Today marks the start of the Feast of San Gennaro.

The festival, which includes savories, sweets, and games, will end on September 21, but the highlight is when, per official website, "the Statue of San Gennaro is carried from its permanent home in Most Precious Blood Church on Mulberry Street through the streets of Little Italy." Of course, neighbors aren't so happy. One sent a desperate email to Curbed, calling it a "rampage" and "despicable affair."
