My wife, daughter and I attended the parade about 10 years ago. As I remember, we stood on Broadway at about 50th street. We were staying at the Waldorf-Astoria and walked across town. I believe we got there about 8 am and got next to the police barracades right up front. Keep in mind that it is a bit of a wait because the parade starts along Central Park West and makes its way down to MACY's which is quite a ways. Dress warm, although the weather can be unseasonable as it was when we went. As for bathrooms, there were restaurants nearby that you could access their facilities. If you are planning on getting into the area in front of MACY's, bathrooms may be non-existent. It was a lot of fun and very memorable. We have been back to NYC since then about 20 times

I received this email from Macys yesterday;

Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we do not disclose the costs associated with producing the Parade. Suffice it to say, it is a national tradition dating back to 1924 that is watched and enjoyed each year by more than 60 million people. The Parade is also a huge draw and boon to New York City for millions of tourists and New Yorkers alike.

Regarding Mr. Williams, he will not be performing in this year's Parade. We are not aware of any issues regarding his last appearance, nor did we hear of any. He seemed well to us and performed beautifully. [/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]Thanks and enjoy the Parade this year. It will be another spectacular show.[/SIZE]

Any thoughts? This still does not clear up the mystery of how much this is costing the city.

Well the parade is next week. I am still thinking about how much this is going to cost us. Any ideas on who else I might contact? Macy's does not want to talk about the cost of the parade, so it must be quite large.
All ideas are welcomed!
Best,
JH
