The crisis in Gaza is very much on the minds of Muslims across the city celebrating Eid.
Members of the Muslim community gathered in Astoria Park Monday to mark Eid, the end of Ramadan, a month-long period of fasting and prayer.
While those we spoke to say they hope for peace between Israel and Gaza, not all are optimistic.
"We prayed last night for the cease fire, for people to at least have their own Eid in peace," said one worshiper.
"I hope it starts getting into effect very soon. Just to avoid more killing of children and women, and even anyone," said another worshiper.
"Now we can see every two years, the same fighting, the same happening, and killing, and cease fire, without solution. The solution is Gaza has to be free, Gaza has to be not occupied by the choice of Israel every time," said a third worshiper.
Ramadan is considered the holiest time on the Islamic calendar.
