Yesterday marked the end of NY’s iconic West Indian Day Carnival. The 47th run of the parade was about two miles long, running the length of Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway through Crown Heights. This year’s spectacle drew a crowd of more than 1 million performers and spectators. The annual event was beautifully photographed by The Cut’s Dina Litovsky, and captures all the feathered, bedazzled goodness one can expect from the parade. Check out a few shots below, and see more at NY Mag.
