West Indian American Day Parade Draws Millions to Crown Heights, Brooklyn

The 43rd annual West Indian American Day Parade snaked along Eastern Parkway from Rochester Avenue to the Brooklyn Museum in perfect weather yesterday -- one block shorter than usual (a cost-cutting move). Several estimates put more than three million in attendance at the "largest carnival parade in North America."
