How do Muslims in Kensington and Ditmas Park celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan? Locals like Monirul Islam share their family’s traditions with Ditmas Park Corner’s Carly Miller.

He explains, “On the holiday we experience how poor people feel. We live through the fast. Today is the day we celebrate after fasting for 30 days; we feast and spend time with family. We eat biryani, which is rice and meat. And sweet stuff too!”

Go to Ditmas Park Corner for more photos and read how others in the area observe Eid.
