A parranda hits the streets of NYC's El Barrio on Saturday afternoon. Albert Medina and the East River Northern Renewal presented the parranda, which they hope will become an annual tradition.
A group of musicians and singers walked the streets of El Barrio and ended up at La Marqueta, which back in its heyday was a thriving marketplace.
