This image hails from Hunts Point and comes courtesy of my friend Chris Arnade who writes:

Juan was dancing outside the bodega I was headed into. I couldn’t pass him by, and he was not going to miss a chance in front of the camera.

Lest the proliferation of Puerto Rican flags in our fair burgh has not clued you in, dear readers, the Puerto Rican Day Parade will come to pass tomorrow starting at 11:00 a.m. You can get the full rundown on this event by clicking here.

Okay. For over a week I have been fretting about how I would give a nod to my many Boriquen friends and neighbors in the Garden Spot. Then I met these guys on Manhattan Avenue yesterday afternoon.

I explained to the gentleman on the far right that I loved their bikes and wanted to take a picture of them to commemorate Puerto Rican Day on my web site. He, in turn, explained this to his colleagues.

They were all smiles.

Happy Puerto Rican Day New York City!
