My husband works in lower Manhattan, not far from the portion of Broadway known as the "Canyon of Heroes" because of the almost 200 ticker tape parades held there from the 1880's onward. He went over to the Yankee baseball team's ticker tape parade celebrating their 27th win of the World Series. Luckily, early in the morning, he was able to take a few photos of the floats and vintage cars that would be used to transport the players up Broadway from the Battery to City Hall, where the mayor would give all the players keys to the city.
He went back later when the parade began, and the hundreds of thousands of people who came there almost completely blocked his view! The crowds roared, church bells rang, and although ticker tape is no longer used anymore, as technology has advanced, streams of all kinds of shredded office paper rained down from the windows of many of the buildings lining the route. It was definitely an exciting sight!
Congratulations to the New York Yankees...and on to winning number 28!
