MAYOR BLOOMBERG WISHES NEW YORKERS AN EID MUBARAK
"As New Yorkers of all faiths are gathering with their families this Thanksgiving weekend, millions of Muslim New Yorkers are also gathering with their families to celebrate Eid al-Adha, one of the holiest times of the year for people of Muslim faith and a time of special focus on charitable giving. New York’s religious and ethnic diversity, and our appreciation of and respect for that diversity, is a big part of why this is the greatest city in the world. On this Thanksgiving weekend, I’m grateful that we continue to be a place where all people of all faiths live together in harmony, and I extend my best wishes to everyone celebrating Eid al-Adha. Eid Mubarak."
