MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG WISHES NEW YORKERS A RAMADAN MUBARAK AT THE START OF RAMADAN
"There is no single reason why New York is the greatest city on earth, but chief among them is that the world's hardest-working people come to achieve a better life for their families and simultaneously enrich and are enriched by their neighbors once here. The start of Ramadan marks the beginning of a time of fasting, prayer and reflection for New Yorkers in all Five Boroughs, and I want to extend my best wishes for this holiest month on the Muslim calendar. Ramadan Mubarak."
