The annual Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy is one of New York City’s largest events is in its 93rd year in 2019. The festival, which runs along Mulberry Street from Canal Street in Little Italy to Houston Street, is an 11-day salute to the patron saint of Naples. From cannoli eating contests, musical performances, religious blessings of the food stands, and celebrity appearances, it’s not surprising that Chuck and Police Commissioner Richie Sansome (actor Michael Rispoli who you’re also seeing in The Deuce), would announce his candidacy for New York State Attorney General at the Feast of San Gennaro.
Based on how this scene is shot close in, it appears that the aerial shot of the Feast was taken last September during the actual 92nd annual festival but the scene itself and closeups may have been recreated later.
