Dept. of Sanitation finishes West Indian Day cleanup

Cleanup crews were out along Eastern Parkway Tuesday, tidying up the area after the West Indian Day Parade. 



The Department of Sanitation says it began cleaning up the parade route as soon as the festival ended Monday night.



A full arsenal of street sweepers was deployed to clean the area, along with multiple foot crews who picked up garbage and removed portable bathrooms.



The parade drew over a million spectators.
