New York Giants Ticker-Tape Parade Tomorrow!
Following the Giant’s triumphant victory in last nights Super Bowl, a ticker-tape parade will be held down the Canyon of Heroes in classic New York fashion tomorrow at 11am. We’re not trying to encourage anyone to play hooky from work or cut school to attend this celebration that’s sure to be a shit show with massive crowds of revelers. We’re just saying the memories will last you a lifetime… Think about it…
Here are the full details as released from the Mayor’s office:
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg announced last night that New York City will host a ticker-tape parade in honor of the Super Bowl XLVI Champions New York Giants on Tuesday, February 7th, 2012. The parade will begin at Battery Place and Washington Street at 11:00 AM and continue northbound up the Canyon of Heroes to Worth Street. The parade will be followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza, at which the Mayor will present the NY Giants with Keys to the City.
“Big Blue gave us a game to remember, and on Tuesday we’re going to give them a parade to remember,” said Mayor Bloomberg.
While the sidewalks lining Tuesday’s ticker-tape parade up the Canyon of Heroes along Broadway from the Battery to City Hall are open to all members of the public, there is limited space on City Hall Plaza for the ceremony with the Giants players and owners. The City will set up three large screens around City Hall for members of the public to watch the ceremony. In addition to tickets for Giants friends and family, additional tickets for seats on City Hall Plaza will be distributed to the public by Members of the City Council and other City elected officials, community organizations that work in partnership with the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit in all five boroughs, City and State agencies, and municipal unions.
