Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Since I moved into NYC 25 years ago, I have been going to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. I have watched it from the Grand Stands, from in front of Macy's, from Broadway and for the past 8 years from Central Park West. The best place to see the parade is on the west side of Central Park West between 77th and 59th street. Hands down best spot! If you want a secure spot on the front line, you will need to arrive before 5:30 am. It is early and the work of crazy people, but look at those smiles. For one day anyone can do it. Here are some other ideas from mommypoppins.com for those wanting to sleep a bit later. Happy Thanksgiving!
