New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio & First Lady Chirlane McCray hosted a reception for the Dominican Day Parade at Gracie Mansion on August 11, 2016.
Outgoing New York Congressman Charles B. Rangel took the stage to say goodbye. The crowd gave a rousing welcome to incoming New York Congressman Adriano Espaillat. Espaillat is the first Dominican-American member of congress.
Then we all had fun together with great Dominican appetizers by Marcha Cocina & Bar. Dominicanidad!
