This year again, the 14th of July festivities were numerous in New York, in New Jersey and in the Connecticut. From the "pétanque" tournament in Brooklyn to the first block party ever to be held in Harlem, and of course the traditional Bastille Day event on 60th street, the French National Day was well celebrated throughout the city.
