How do I get to the parade?
It is highly recommended that you take public transportation as No Parking will be in effect beginning at 12:00am on the day of the parade. Any cars remaining will be towed and relocated.
The MTA will have train service changes, and may close certain subway entrances and exits in the area. Due to street closures, many MTA buses may be re-routed. The MTA is making every effort to communicate this information to their customers. You can visit the MTA website for any additional information.
How can I view the parade?
You may view the parade anywhere along Broadway from the Battery to City Hall. We recommend arriving to Broadway before 10am as NYPD will begin street closings on Broadway and the surrounding area at approximately 10:00am.
Can I cross Broadway during the parade?
Pedestrians will be able to cross Broadway at the following locations: Exchange Alley (Eastbound only), Wall Street-Rector (Westbound only), Cedar Street, Cortland Street/Maiden Lane, Fulton Street, Reade Street, and Leonard Street.
The post-parade ceremony portion of this event has been cancelled due to the heat advisory. The parade is still scheduled as planned.
