From The North Brooklyn Community Group: Born to Giglio!

Giglio A lass named Stephanie Trudeau writes:

I have an upcoming event of neighborhood interest:

I am giving a presentation on Williamsburg’s Giglio Festival (one aspect of my Fulbright research) at the Brooklyn Historical Society on Thusday, March 29 at 7:00 pm. The presentation will be enlivened with a musical performance by Danny Vecchiano, leader of the Vecchiano Festival Band, who will play Giglio songs and talk about his life-long involvement with the Giglio Festival. Come learn about a week-long celebration with music, food and pageantry that happens in a Brooklyn neighborhood. Beautiful photos and wonderful music – should be a fun night.

Immediate Release:

Big D again: Brooklyn Heights Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I was happy to run into Big D again, this time in my neighborhood. I wanted to give him a copy of the first picture I took of him: Big D

He was in a corner reading “America: Its people and places” by G. Gerosa. We caught up and then I told him about the series I did of people reading books and he agreed to let me take another picture.
