10 or 11 thousand dominicans living in the neighborhood, perhaps.

that's roughly three times as big a population as the peruvian, who had a lovely parade today.

Why is there a need to have so many parades?

Peruvian parade was nice to watch.  I think they were disorganized though, as the music booming from their stereos was drowning each other out.  Was a shame because the drum which guided the two inca warrior dance/mock battle (which was very cool) couldn't be heard.

I'm fine with as many parades as folks want.  I'd just like to see some sort of controls on the noise.  It really borders on silliness.

german ranks just below west indian and above polish (that one surprises me), so there's hope.

So very many Spanish parades.  Why not just have one for all these Spanish Countries?  So many parades equals a waste of taxpayer money.

Yeah! And another thing too. Why have separate celebrations for christmas and channukah? Such a waste! They are at about the same time and refer to the same god! You could save them some serious $$$. Stupid inefficient religions!

Also! Why not celebrate the 4th of July and the british queen's birthday. They are close enough in time, and they are all anglo in origin! Duh! Waste of taxpayers money or WHAT. I'm a goddamn genius, thinking of these Ideas Out Loud Without A Second Thought!

Agree. There's already a Hispanic parade.
