New York's biggest celebration of Caribbean culture occurs every Labor Day, when almost two million people line the streets of Crown Heights for the West Indian-American Day Carnival. This year there was even more of a reason to party: 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of Trinidadian and Jamaican independence. During the parade, steel-pan and calypso bands in elaborate costumes marched down Eastern Parkway, and vendors sold homestyle island grub along the route. TONY photographer Phyllis Dooney was there to capture the colorful sights.
