A few years back, while heading towards Greenpoint from Astoria via Greenpoint Avenue, a religious parade was encountered heading for Saint Raphael’s RC Church. I couldn’t believe how amazing the Bolivian costuming was, and this was just the head of a very long and colorful snake composed of hundreds of dancing people.

As mentioned last week, I’m taking a bit of a break and there will be single shots from my archives offered all week at this, your Newtown Pentacle.
