The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center is one of New York’s most popular event locations.

Unfortunately, a quick search online will show you that parking in the area can range anywhere from $15 an hour up to $25 or more, and that probably won’t even cover the time it takes you to get into the convention center.

There are few things more “New York” than the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Held nearly every year since 1924, it’s one of the biggest events the City has to offer, and one of the most extravagant celebrations in the country. The balloons, floats, celebrities, marching bands and the excitement of the crowds are a memorable way to start Thanksgiving Day and kick of the Christmas season.
In recent years, the parade has been seen by more than 50 million people around the country and more than 3.5 million people along a two-mile stretch of the parade route. Seeing the parade in person is one of those things everyone consider doing at least once. Read More
