NYC will have a ticker tape parade for the Yankee's victory!!!

As I watched, the New York Yankee's world series game 6, I screamed as they clinched the series and beat the Philies. It was spectacular!!! Yet, I was not alone. I swear, I heard screams from cheering fans in distance, from my brownstone rental. I must admit, because of the Yankee's powerful performance, I am now a fan forever. To celebrate this great victory, NYC will have a ticker tape parade!

According to the Star ledger's article in today's paper, on Friday, November 6, "the parade will begin at 11 a.m. at Broadway at Battery Place and proceed northbound up the fabled Canyon of Heroes to City Hall, at Chambers St. At City Hall, the Yankees will be presented with Keys to the City at 1 p.m. by Mayor Michael Bloomberg."

How do you get to this parade? Take a look below for mass transit options listed in today’s article form the Star Ledger:

· Taking the PATH train to the World Trade Center stop.

· Taking a train to New York Penn Station, followed by taking the 1 train downtown to Rector St.; the 2 or 3 train downtown to Park Place; the A or C train downtown to Fulton St.; or the E train downtown to World Trade Center.

· Taking the bus to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, followed by taking the A or C train downtown to Fulton St., or the E train downtown to World Trade Center.

· Taking the bus to the George Washington Bridge Terminal, followed by the A train downtown to Fulton St.

This is a free event. Millions are expected to attend, cheer and show a wave of supporting affection, to our darling Yankee’s, who momentarily will make New Yorkers’ forget about this dire economy!!!
