Photographer Jorge Quinteros snapped some stunning portraits at the 116th Street Festival, one day before the National Puerto Rican Day Parade on 5th Ave. this weekend. The East Harlem street festival, the largest of its kind in the Northeast, features 20 blocks of food, music, games and exhibits. More than 100,000 people were in attendance for the festivities. Quinteros's photos capture the event's celebratory atmosphere.
