Bronx Cheer for Mayor

Gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino made it. Most of the Bronx elected officials made it. Even a former “Soprano’s” star made it. So why did Mayor Bill deBlasio skip the annual Bronx Columbus Day Parade when his predecessor Mike Bloomberg was a regular fixture at the Morris Park event? Bronxites were a bit ticked that the mayor chose not to attend the annual event which displays Italian-American Heritage in the Bronx.

Various community organizations, school bands, and more marched in the annual event on Morris Park Avenue. This year Bronx native and “Soprano’s” star Vincent Pastore was the Grand Marshal.
