Labor Day 2013 on Eastern Parkway - What Happened?
Posted Sep 04, 2013

Massive gentrification in the immediate neighborhood has displaced many of Caribbean descent. In addition, the recent economically difficult times have also appeared to make it difficult to connect with the kinds of sponsors necessary to obtain the expensive licenses and floats required to entertain on the parade route.
