Always a colorful feast for the senses, the 2013 African American Day Parade also brought out the stars of the current New York political scene. A convertible ferrying Grand Marshals Congressman Charles Rangel and former Mayor David Dinkins led the charge up Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, followed by former Controller and perhaps-Mayoral runoff candidate Bill Thompson.
Bronx Borough President and Independent Mayoral Candidate Adolfo Carrion marched closely behind. Council member and Public Advocate candidate Letitia James was also there waving to the crowds, as was Manhattan Borough President and Democratic Controller hopeful Scott Stringer.
Toward the end, current Public Advocate and Democratic Mayoral primary winner –who in past parades walked toward the front– was this time riding large on a float with his wife and a live band.
Of course it’s not all about the politics, it’s also about the people.

On a crisp autumn day in New York we decided to walk through Central Park and take in the sights and sounds of the Jazz & Colors event.
From uptown to downtown, east to west, Central Park was awash with Jazz and the colors of Fall.
As we meandered through the park it felt as though performances were occurring at almost every turn. Each one featuring a band playing their unique rendition of great songs and surrounded by listeners.
It was a beautiful thing.
Below are just a few images and performances from uptown to commemorate this years event and in anticipation of next years event.
