BROOKLYN - Thousands of people took part yesterday in the West Indian Day Parade on Eastern Parkway.

However, after the floats and food were gone from the annual Labor Day event, sanitation workers began the hard task of cleaning up the streets along the parade route.

"Once 6 p.m. hits and it's over, the garbage trucks come sweeping down all night," said Eastern Parkway resident Jill House. "They clean it up quick. Tomorrow you're not even going to know there was a parade here."
