From the archives

These are archival shots of the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Brooklyn. An annual event that features the lift of the giglio. It's a tall structure carried by so called carriers and lifters. A wonderful neighborhood event much appreciated by the new hipsters that populate the area. It gives them a certain ethnic authenticity, if you know what I mean.
