FORT GREENE -

Fort Greene Park was one of many parks around the borough packed for the Fourth of July holiday.

Dozens of families gathered around their grills for Independence Day staples like hot dogs and burgers. Some even cooked up homemade tacos.

Victor Ramos said his family had been coming to the park for the past 12 years.

"I feel really happy, because they have a good time here," he says. "They go up there to play, and we eat. Everything is great."

To cap the evening off, they waited for the fireworks.
