New York Mas


Share post:

Barbadians and other Caribbean people “tore up” Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, ​New York, yesterday when they took part ​in the annual West Indian Carnival ​on Labour Day.

Among the personalities playing mas’ were Barbadian-born New York Justice Sylvia Hinds-Radix, Congresswoman Yvette Clarke and her mother, former City Council member Dr Una Clarke.

Neville Bush, a popular New York-based Bajan radio personality, said he was disappointed “that for the third consecutive year there was no Bajan truck on the Parkway”.

He added: “We need to have a presence on occasions like these if you are living outside of Barbados. You like to feel that there is some piece of the island which is here with you.”

However, the Barbados Flag was still dominant among the revellers.
