NYC Pride March Live

Event Information:

Fifth Avenue is the traditional route for many celebratory parades in New York City; thus, it is closed to traffic on numerous Sundays in warm weather. The longest running parade is the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. Parades held are distinct from the ticker-tape parades held on the "Canyon of Heroes" on lower Broadway, and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade held on Broadway from the Upper West Side downtown to Herald Square.

Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare in the centre of the borough of Manhattan in New York City, USA. The section of Fifth Avenue that crosses Midtown Manhattan, especially that between 49th Street and 60th Street, is lined with prestigious shops and is consistently ranked among the most expensive shopping streets in the world. The "most expensive street in the world" moniker changes depending on currency fluctuations and local economic conditions from year to year.

The Pride March passes by the site of the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, location of the 1969 police raid which launched the modern Pride Movement. The first NYC Pride March was held in 1970 and is the oldest pride parade. The March has been and will continued to be called a March not a Parade until the organizers believe there is full equality for their community.
