PRSUN Project: PR Parade

Image
One of my favorite times of the year in New York City is Puerto Rican Parade season. It is not just because of the parade. It is also because of the festivities that lead up to the parade. This year I attended such events as the Gracie Mansion reception that Mayor Bill di Blasio and NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito hosted, the parade's 152nd Street Festival in the Bronx, and the Abrazo Boricua reception at Maestro Caterers in the Bronx.

An online magazine made sense even though I first envisioned PRSUN as a newspaper since I was a print journalist. I didn't know at the time how much newspaper journalism was going to be transformed. It is a little heartbreaking, but then again I love a free and open Internet and will continue to defend it.
