What a great time of year to have a furnished apartment in New York City.This is the event that is marked by many as the start to the holiday season, and it gives millions a chance to have fun kicking it off in the Big Apple.

The History of the Parade

Since 1924, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been one of the liveliest spectacles of American culture. If you can’t make it, that’s okay. About 50 million others watch it traditionally every year from the comfort of their own homes, and so can you from your furnished apartment in New York City.The Emmy Award Winning occasion always has unique characters from past to present, live performances from your favorite artists and celebrities, and is seen in person by over 3 million people.

The Line Up for 2014

2014’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be packed with outstanding marching bands. Out of Cullowee, North Carolina the Western Carolina University Marching Band will be in huge attendance, along with many others. These include The Georgia State University Marching Band out of Atlanta, Georgia, and, representing the parade themselves, the Macy’s Great American Marching Band. You’ll likely hear the live music they play all the way from your furnished apartment in New York City.

The floats are what many spectators of this loved affair look forward to the most, especially children. They can’t wait to see their favorite characters from movies and cartoons fly as huge balloons almost 3 stories in high in the air. Last year, Spongbob Squarepants lit up the sky as he donned his Christmas hat, signifying the holiday season. A native to New York, Spiderman was also there with his fingers in familiar web-spewing fashion.

A humungous Kermit the Frog was in laid back mode as he floated and waved at kids and parents while they cheered him on, and the Pillsbury Doughboy wasn’t far from him. Snoopy and his sidekick Woodstock also had their shining moments, as well as Mickey and the entire Disney Crew, Sonic the Hedgehog, the gigantic Thanksgiving Turkey, and, of course, Santa Claus!If you’re lucky enough to live in the right location, one of these loved characters may justfly right past your furnished apartment in New York City.

The Route

Starting at the corner of 77th Street and Central Park West, the parade will move south. Then, at 59th Street, every float, band, or performer will make a left. They’ll then head down 7th and make another left at Times Square. The next turn will be a right on 6th Avenue, and everyone will continue to move south to 34th, where they’ll make one more right, and end at the corner of 7th Avenue.
