Tuesday's New York Giants ticker tape parade route will include the great Canyon of Heroes.
Big Blue gave us a game to remember, and on Tuesday we're going to give them a parade to remember, the Mayor said Sunday night following the Giants' huge win over the Patriots.
The parade will begin promptly at 11 a.m. in lower Manhattan, at Battery Place and Washington Street. Working north, celebrations will continue up the Canyon of Heroes all the way up to Worth Street.
According to the Mayor's office, the parade will be followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza, where Mayor Bloomberg is expected to present the Giants with official Keys to the City.
Those planning to go should arrive early, as the sidewalks lining the Canyon of Heroes along Broadway (from Battery to City Hall) are open to the public.
Also open to the public is City Hall Plaza, but space will be limited as family and friends of the Giants will have designated viewing areas. The public will have a chance Monday morning to win one of 250 pairs of tickets from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. EST through the following channels: the nyc.gov Web site, by phone at 3-1-1, by sending a text message to 311692 or by filling out a form through the Mayor's Office Twitter page (one entry per person).
Giants fans can also catch the ceremony on one of three large screens around City Hall Tuesday morning.
The last time the Canyon of Heroes parade route was used was in 2009, when the New York Yankees celebrated their 27th World Series Championship.
According to WABC, the following streets will be closed to traffic during Tuesday's parade:
All streets between Broadway and Church Streets from Canal to Pearl Street
- Lafayette and Centre Street from Canal to Chambers
- Park Row between Chambers Street and Broadway
- Spruce Street between Gold Street and Park Row
