Italian-American Heritage at Brooklyn Borough Hall: 'Celebrazione E Ricevimento'

Brooklyn Borough Hall was packed Wednesday night for the annual "Celebrazione E Ricevimento" to honor Italian-American Heritage Month in Brooklyn.

BP Marty Markowitz, who was of course Italian for this night, honored Monsignor David L. Cassato, pastor, St. Athanasius Church and NYPD chaplain; Patricia M. Di Mango, Justice of the Supreme Court, Kings County; and the Columbian Lawyers Association of Brooklyn.

Music, dancing -- the unbridled performance of the tarantella is remarkable --
and food, food, food from the borough's best Italian restaurants make this a very popular affair.

Stations were set up throughout the Rotunda of Borough Hall.

Last year's celebration here -- see the tarantella.
