Muslims across New York and around the world are observing the holy month of Ramadan, which is marked with fasting and prayers during daylight hours.
Many Muslims end their daytime fast each evening with a celebration with family and friends.
Traditionally, Ramadan is also known as a period of goodwill and forgiveness.
The Islamic calendar follows the lunar cycle, meaning Ramadan starts 11 days earlier each year.
