The dance of the giglio in East Harlem
The giglio was danced in East Harlem Sunday, and amNewYork photographer RJ Mickelson was there. Just outside Our Lady of Mount Carmel on 115th Street between First and Pleasant avenues, the Giglio Boys performed their annual Dance of the Giglio, where roughly 100 men carried a wooden, five-story, hand-sculpted tower while a brass band played Italian folk songs. Atop the structure was a Statue of Liberty. Click here for RJ's photos.
