@ 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.

Bronx Street Named in Honor of Casa Amadeo's Mike Amadeo

Image
A street in the Bronx was recently named in honor of Mike Amadeo, the legendary owner of the Casa Amadeo music shop and composer. Prospect Avenue is now also known as Miguel Angel (Mike) Amadeo Way. Here are some scenes of the May 10 celebration, attended by local elected officials, musicians, community leaders and Amadeo's family members. After the street naming, there was a 80th birthday bash for Amadeo at Casita Maria in Hunts Point. He is 80 years young.
