MAP: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade route and street closures

The 88th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be held on Thanksgiving Day, November 27. To get the best view of the parade, Macy’s suggests getting to the following areas as early as possible:

Central Park West – Anywhere along Central Park West from 77th Street to Columbus Circle should give you a great view.

Central Park South at Sixth Avenue – As the parade makes its way from Columbus Circle you can catch a great view from this area as it turns down 6th Avenue.

If you can’t make it to Central Park West, the next best spot would be anywhere along Sixth Avenue from 59th Street to 38th Street.

NOTE: There will be limited viewing areas on Sixth Avenue between 34th Street and 38th Street due to television coverage.
