On Sunday East 204th Street between Decatur and Hull Avenues was closed for the Annual Bangladeshi Street Festival. Officers from the 52nd Precinct estimated over 500 people attended the day long street festival. There were booths set up to buy traditional Bangladesh food and clothing, a stage set up for various modern and traditional music, and a visit by Assemblywoman Nathalia Fernandez who handed out citations to several of the people who made the festival possible. Photos of the event are below.
