PELHAM PARKWAY - Dozens of residents gathered today on Pelham Parkway South to celebrate Albanian Independence Day.

Neighbors flew their Albanian flags with several city officials and community leaders to celebrate the 101 years of their country's independence.

This is the fifth year that neighborhood Albanians have gotten together to celebrate their homeland, and as a show of solidarity both the Albanian flag and American flag were flown.

Those who braved the cold also enjoyed food and dancing at the event.
