United Nations of Brooklyn!

United as 'One Brooklyn' Sunday the borough in all it's diversity joined together for the First Annual Celebration of International Day of Friendship at Borough Hall in Brooklyn, New York.
(Pic-Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Deputy Borough President Diana Reyna) Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams hosted his signature event Sunday as the community covered the steps of Borough Hall. The entire building was surrounded in love with delegates from many nations of the world.
(Pic-Yours Truly with Mini me#2-Legacy Lewis) Attendees enjoyed a free international cruisine tasting, back to school giveaways and cultural performances throughout the day. My daughter and I enjoyed getting our sodas from Coca-Cola (aren't those new cans cool?) and tasting Italian and Panamanian foods. Book bags from Healthfirst and school supplies of crayons, glue and dial and teacher resources from the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) were much appreciated.
(Pic-Fan dance) Words of welcome came from elected officials like the 1st elected Haitian Council Member Dr. Mathieu Eugene, who looking at the crowd addressed them as the 'United Nations of Brooklyn'. Business leaders like Dr. Roy A. Hastick Sr. CEO and Founder of the Caribbean American Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Inc. -(CACCI) addressed the crowd as well other diverse leaders.
(Pic-Delegates from Nepal) One could see smiles on the faces of volunteers, attendees, performers and delegates. One Brooklyn! Enjoy these amazing photos and video on Instagram.
