@ the Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade

Image
On Sunday, June 1, the Bronx, the borough with the largest Puerto Rican population in NYC, celebrated its Puerto Rican Day Parade along the Grand Concourse. The Bronx parade kicks off Puerto Rican parade season in the city. Here are a few photos I shot that day. The Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. missed a good parade. Sunday is the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in Manhattan. See you there.

PRSUN today celebrates its blogosversary. While PRSUN was born in the summer of 2002 as an e-magazine, I started blogging right here at www.prsun.blogspot.com in the summer of 2004. Here I am at the 116th street festival in East Harlem last month with two interesting characters I met. It has been a pleasure documenting stories and events related to the Puerto Rican community. Thank you for your ongoing support of this multimedia project. PRSUN is currently in transition, but I wanted to take a moment to celebrate this PRSUN blogosversary with my readers, visitors, advertisers and sponsors. Informing, empowering and building community continues to be PRSUN's business and social mission. Happy blogosversary PRSUN. I do love this independent media and art business.

Thanks comunidad
