Before I start I would like to welcome you to the fourth day of the continuing winter. Yeah they said that Spring had sprung on Friday but its been super cold ever since so I am kind of convinced winter has made a side deal with Mother Nature. Now, where was I – Oh yea….. You probably didn’t realize that St. Patrick’s Day was a week long celebration if you’re not from the immediate NYC area. With parades happening before 3/17 and additional ones after that date it would surely seem to be the case. That brings us to this presentation which is a visual of the Bay Ridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade that happened yesterday in our neighborhood. I like presenting this for our faraway readers as much as those former Ridge residents who now live in other parts of the country. Here we go.
Hello my friends and welcome to Bay Ridge where earlier in the day we had our annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. This is the first parade of the year in our neighborhood and since it passes right by my block I always try to snag a bunch of images for you readers to enjoy. One of the main reasons that I do this is for those long ago residents who might have moved away from this neck of the woods so they get a little slice of the old neighborhood. Earlier this year my own family packed up and headed to South Carolina. Oh don’t worry, I’m still here in NYC and ready to entertain you again and again so let’s get started on these parade visuals. I’ll be letting the images do the talking and say very little until we’re done.
