    livelymorgue:

    July 9, 1978: In an Italian section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, St. Paulinus of Nola was honored in classic tradition during an annual parade. It took 150 men to carry a giant monument, or “giglio,” to the saint to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. Photo: Fred R. Conrad/The New York Times

    I not only immediately recognized this photo as Brooklyn—I recognized it as a photo of the first block I lived on when I moved to NY! It didn’t change a bit between 1978 and 1998. I loved watching the dancing of the giglio past our third-story window. I don’t miss it much now, though.
