Broadway Festive as New Yorkers Celebrate Superbowl Champions NY Giants

It seems all of New York turned out yesterday for the ticker tape parade celebrating the New York Giants' Superbowl Championship. The crowd was thick with blue jerseys, and the kids threw toilet paper back and forth across Broadway as everybody waited for the parade to begin. Sidewalks on either side of Broadway were absolutely packed with Giants fans, starting south of the Wall Street Bull and headed north, all the way up the Canyon of Heroes to City Hall and Chambers Street.

Despite the huge turnout (reports say over one million people lined Broadway), the crowd was well-controlled. It seemed, for the most part, that everyone was happy to skip work for the morning and celebrate the hometown heroes. Eli Manning, Mayor Bloomberg and Governor Cuomo spent the morning riding on the same float headed uptown, hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy high for photos.
