The NYC ticker tape parades are an AMERICAN tradition. NYC is the country's largest city. This was an American sports win. Did you whine when they did it for the astronauts or veterans? They weren't New Yorkers, either.

That said, I'm just going in to lower Manhattan NOW, because I didn't want to deal with that mess lol.

I recall Ed Koch denying a parade for the "New York" Giants back in 1986 or 87 because they aren't officially from NY. I'm glad the women's national team won, but I just think the resources can be better used on city services.

At least one of the players is from New York and a couple more from close by. If you insist on why New York, then we can ask, why any other state.

They got a parade in 2015 for winning the WC.
Are you saying De Blasio can predict the future?

1/5 of a team of 23 is 4.6 people. You are really going to compare 4.6 people with hundreds of thousands of Puerto Rican/Irish/West Indian New Yorkers?

This really shows that you would put political pettiness over the hardship of regular New York taxpayers.
