a coach, a mayor, a governor, a manning and a few other important people
The 46th champion in Super Bowl history became the NY Football Giants on Sunday. The city that never sleeps managed to honor the newly crowned champions with a ticker tape parade less than 48 hours later. This morning Lower Broadway lived up to its title, the Canyon of Heroes. The last minute win by the Giants gave them the honor of becoming hometown heroes for millions. The crowds were thick and coated in blue. This February morning offered clear and mild skies. A lucky invite to a viewing party on the 4th floor of a building on Broadway gave me a lovely few of all the excitement. And the ticker tape raining down was so fun! Ticker tape parades are a special part of New York history and I can see why.
Great to see the players hopping off the floats and running to the crowds of people. The spectators ate it up.
Congratulations to the New York Giants. Thanks for giving NYC another reason to hold a grand parade.
