Here's the official word:
The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, Community Affairs Unit, and the New York City Commission on Human Rights are delighted to invite you to the first ever Iftar in the City, a festive dinner celebration that will bring together NYC’s diverse communities during the Islamic month of Ramadan. We’ll join Muslim New Yorkers as they break their daily fast, and will dine along a communal table stretching the length of a city block! The dinner will offer a delicious halal and vegetarian menu, and accommodations will be provided for those who are observing the sunset prayer.
The dinner was from 7:30 to 9:30.
