Labor Day in Brooklyn

Brooklyn New York, West Indian Day Parade: It's Labor Day in Brooklyn, time again for New Yorkers and  folks who come from all points: England, Canada and across America.

Converging on Brooklyn, New York for this grass-roots of Caribbean parades.

An interesting foot note. Grand Army Plaza traffic circle who's name sake the Grand Army of the Republic, is a tribute to the American civil war union forces.
Brooklyn Grand Army Plaza Neighborhood.

I find  celebration in  this 80 wide by 80 feet high monument sitting in the middle of this circle.

It is dedicated to men and women of all races and creed who took up arms against their southern brothers.

And died for the ideal of a perfect union. A fitting end to a parade of pride by a people of African heritage, from a different shore.
