Commonly street markets around the world present an arcade to pedestrians allowing them to be at once inside and outside. The Essex Street Market does not have a sidewalk extension. The facade is rather an uninviting brick wall, perhaps a planned institutional barrier that Mayor La Guardia desired as he sought to take cart vendors off the streets. “Recetas y Gangas” is an audio montage that seeks to extend the Essex Street Market on to the sidewalk through the voices of vendors and shoppers from within the market.
