St. Patrick's Day Parade

The British first conquered New York City right in Brooklyn Heights, and centuries later the Irish American Parade Committee still commemorates the 41st anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn (as many of the committee members’ forefathers were involved in that war) and celebrates Irish-American contributions to New York City. At 12:45pm, the procession also honors the heroes and victims of 9/11.
