2009 New York Yankees Parade Info



























Friday's ticker-tape parade will begin on Broadway at Battery Place (map above). They will make their way down the Canyon of Heroes to City Hall where the Mayor will present everyone (even Bruney) Keys to the City.

  • The Parade will start at 11 AM Friday Morning (11/6/09)
  • There are projected to be 3 million people attending the parade (including Nate and I)
  • You need tickets to go to the City Hall ceremony but they will showing it on a giant TV near City Hall plaza.
Here is the quote from Bloomberg:
Congratulations to the Yankees for bringing the world championship back home to New York City, where it belongs," said Bloomberg. "The Yankees have thrilled the city all year long with their come-from-behind victories and never-say-die attitude, and they did it again in the World Series. What's sweeter than a World Series won at home? The only thing that comes close is a ticker-tape parade up the Canyon of Heroes, and that's exactly what New Yorkers will get on Friday. The Phillies were a tough team to beat, but I must admit I look forward to seeing Mayor (Michael) Nutter in pinstripes as he joins me and some of our public school students as we paint the Albert Einstein School in the Bronx."

I will update this post with more info as it comes.
