Greek Independence Day

Today is the 188th Anniversary of Greek Independence and thousands of Greek Americans from New York and other states converged in Manhattan for the annual parade on Fifth Avenue. Before the parade commenced, we caught a performance by some Greek dancers from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania near The Plaza. Above are some photos of a traditional dance by the group. To complete our "Greek experience" of the day, we had lunch at Molyvos, a popular Greek restaurant at 871 7th Avenue, between 55th and 56th Streets near Carnegie Hall.
