The Undocumented, The Unemployed, The Sick, The Homeless, and The Despised, Upper West Side, Manhattan

A religious parade marched up Amsterdam Avenue this afternoon. The overarching theme (other than Hispanic/religion) wasn't clear from the signs and floats, so I looked online and found this description of the event:

13th Encuentro Hispano – Culture and Faith of the Hispanic Community of America • Amsterdam Avenue, 90th to 110th Street. All are invited, all races, creeds, languages, and colors, and especially the undocumented, the unemployed, the sick, the homeless, and the despised.

Earlier in the day, I took the photo below shortly after waking and finding that, after many days of rain, the sun was lighting the tree outside our window.
