Our offices will be closed Wednesday, November 11 in observance of the Federal Holiday of Veteran’s Day. We will reopen on Thursday, November 12.
If you are in town for the day, there are many ways to celebrate the day in NYC. Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
Veteran’s Day Parade and Street Fair:
New York’s Veteran’s Day Parade is that largest of it’s kind in the nation – with over 20,000 participants. This year’s parade is a special commemoration marking the 90th Anniversary of Veteran’s Day (1919-2009).
The opening ceremony will start at 10:00 am right here in Madison Square Park at the Eternal Flame. The parade commences at 11am on 23rd Street continuing north on Fifth Avenue up to 59th Street. The official reviewing stand is located at 41st Street in front of the New York Public Library. Bleachers are available next to the reviewing stand.
Following the parade, head over to the Veteran’s Day Street Fair on 56th Street between Madison & Sixth Avenues.
