VE and VJ followed, WAR what is it good for? ABSOLULETY NOTHING !!!! For the first time, this year, no survivors of the attack were able to attend the ceremonies. Do the math. EnJoy ? depends, no?

    Hope they reinstate this cam as it was before the parade, I loved how it panned around and gave us different views.. I've enjoyed getting glimpses of construction on the One Vanderbilt building!

    21nov18--Tomorrow's weather for NYC : Sunny, with a high near 27F. Wind chill values between 5 and 15. Northwest wind 15 to 17 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph. __ A one time weather forecast for the Macy's parade. 'chill' The temperatures will be hard for both the spectators and participants. The other concern is the wind. The big balloons are NOT ALLOWED in the parade if winds are over 30 miles per hour. Even some of the small ones can not be controlled if the winds are too strong. :-/ for the best and EnJoy EnJoy

    Pardon me, Narrow minded ( or not?) of me to assume the whirled knows what NBC represents. Since 1952 a tv broadcasting company ( National Broadcasting Company : NBC ) has aired this parade commercially over the frequencies. Sections of city are reserved for the production. IIRC 37th or 38th Streets Area. The rest of the 2 1/2 mile route is packed with observers. The 'Photos' here on this feed of the parade are very fun captures. ( Thank You Uploaders ). 1952 was before my family home had TV. , maybe 1957 1958 or 1959. The whole country watches at least some of the program. I viewed every year when at all possible. Macy's Parade is not the longest performed, but is the most famous of "Turkey Day" festivities. EnJoy EnJoy

New York - 42nd Street

Our live HD webcam on New York’s 42nd Street offers an extraordinary view of one of midtown Manhattan’s most buzzing arteries.

42nd Street stretches from New York’s East River to the Hudson! Ferries can, in fact, be spotted throughout the day as they head to the city docks. From East to West tourists will find theatres, hotels, restaurants, cinemas and so much more. Home to quite a few landmarks such as the United Nations HQs, the Chrysler building, Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, Bryant Park, NY Port Authority Bus Terminal and One Vanderbilt (currently in construction), 42nd Street intersects with Broadway – which means it’s just steps away from fabulous Times Square - Park Ave, 5th Ave and Madison.

Every year, on the corner of 42nd and Madison, gigantic balloons color the city sky; Macy’s famous Thanksgiving Day Parade, a national tradition since 1924 and the country’s second-oldest Thanksgiving day parade, unwinds along the metropolis’ streets. A festive energy fills the air as characters from beloved cartoons, marching bands and, of course, Mr. Turkey himself entertain endless crowds of all ages. At the end of the parade Santa Clause is welcomed to Herald Square!

There’s so much to see in this action-packed New York City webcam view and it will surely keep you glued to the screen!

 

Fun Facts

From the ‘60s all the way to the ‘80s, New York’s West 42nd Street and part of the Times Square area was labeled as the “red-light district”, a place of crime, drugs and adult movie lounges intentionally avoided by visitors and residents. Seems unbelievable, right? The city’s politics and the efforts made during the 90s proved efficient and paved the way to an important transition that providentially elevated the area to the tourist hotspot we know and love today!
