Bronx residents paint the borough green for St. Patrick?s Day

? Woodlawn residents, and some native Irish, painted the Bronx green this Saint Patrick?s Day.

Lots of people gathered at local restaurants and bars Friday to celebrate, including some people from Ireland who said the holiday is more fun in New York City. Sports fans started the day watching Gaelic football at an area pub where they also got their fill of corned beef and cabbage and soda bread.

Many Bronx residents say the holiday is a day for everyone, Irish or not, to have a good time and reflect on their heritage.
