New York Ghanaians Celebrate in Crotona Park

Photo Slideshow by Adi Talwar

Last Sunday, the New York Ghanaian community celebrated the first-ever Ghanaian Parade with a festival at Crotona Park. Organizers said they were inspired by the huge Puerto Rican and Dominican parade and want to be recognized for their presence and activism just as those ethnic groups are.

At the time of the last census, in 2000, there were 50,000 Ghanaians in New York City. There are big pockets of Ghanaians in the Bronx, especially on Mosholu Parkway (Tracey Towers) and near Crotona Park.
