NEW YORK - Tens of thousands of marchers, wearing colorful red, white and blue clothing, paraded up New York's Avenue of the Americas yesterday, marking the 28th annual celebration of Dominican Day. About 400,000 Dominicans live in New York, second only to the population of the Caribbean island.
Floats carrying dancers and musical acts entertained the throngs of onlookers who took part in the display of Dominican pride.
Police reported a number of arrests, including a youth who allegedly slashed a pregnant 16-year-old, who was rushed to a local hospital in stable condition.
