Hometown Heroes: Road closures, traffic changes, parking rules for ticker-tape parade


LOWER MANHATTAN — New York’s essential workers will be honored Wednesday with a ticker-tape parade, a city tradition with more than a hundred years of history.

As floats pass through the Canyon of Heroes, regular traffic won’t.

What roads will be closed?

The New York City Department of Transportation said the parade will begin at Broadway and Battery Place at 11 a.m., though the NYPD will begin closing streets at around 9:30 a.m., including Broadway.

The parade route follows Broadway from the Battery to City Hall to Chambers Street.

Pedestrians may cross the route at Greenwich Street, Exchange Place, Cedar Street, Cortlandt Street and Vesey Street.

Alternate side parking rules will be in effect Wednesday.

More info from NYC officials:

  • “No Parking” will be in effect beginning at 12:00 a.m., July 7. Any cars remaining will be towed and relocated. If your car is towed, please call 311 for more information.
