Five Great Photos from Good Friday in Astoria, New York


A non-Greek photographer stumbled across a Good Friday procession in Astoria, New York last year. Fortunately, he had his camera handy and captured these five great photos of St. Irene Chrysovalantou Church’s ceremony.

The impressive processions, which takes place annually in the Greek enclave of New York City, include thousands of faithful and numerous parishes in a few square mile radius.
