Rangel, Dinkins and the Never-Ending Parade

Charlie Rangel and David Dinkins perched on the back of a white convertible to ride the length of yesterday’s African-American Day Parade on Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard in Harlem.

After the parade, when I walked over to Lenox Avenue to catch a ride to City Hall, there they were, still riding on the back of the car in the Sunday afternoon traffic, waving to onlookers and ignoring a scattered honks from other motorists.

I’m not sure about the rules on this kind of ride, but two police officers in an unmarked car between 138th and 139th Streets didn’t seem bothered by it.
