Brooklyn gives Perry rousing send-off


An almost Who’s Who in Brooklyn politics, as well as hundreds of supporters and well-wishers were present Saturday night, as the Brooklyn community gave Jamaican-born Assemblyman, N. Nick Perry a rousing send-off as the new United States ambassador to Jamaica.

 Perry, who was expected to be officially installed on Monday by the US Department of State as the new envoy to Jamaica, hosted Saturday night’s gala celebration, at the Holy Family (Catholic) Church Auditorium, on Flatlands Avenue in Canarsie, Brooklyn, as a “Community Thank You.”
