NY Giants Victory Celebration

The New York Giants travel now to New Jersey for a 3 p.m. rally at Met Life stadium.  Earlier today the Super Bowl XLVI champions made their way up NYC’s Canyon of Heroes aboard floats for the Super Bowl Victory Parade.

The parade began at Battery Place and Washington Street at 11:00 a.m. and continues northbound up the Canyon of Heroes to Worth Street. The Giants will be showered with at least 30 tons of manufactured confetti from skyscrapers lining Broadway.

The parade was followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza, at which Mayor Michael Bloomberg presented the New York Giants with Keys to the City.

“Big Blue gave us a game to remember, and on Tuesday we’re going to give them a parade to remember,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said after Sunday’s triumph in Indianapolis.

On Monday, 250 fans nabbed pairs of tickets to the festivities at City Hall. About 50,000 people entered sweepstakes for a place at the ceremony.

A ticker-tape parade was held in February 2008 for the Giants after that year’s Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.

The last ticker-tape parade through New York was in Nov. 2009 after the New York Yankees beat the Philadelphia Phillies in six games for their 27th World Series title.
