Thanksgiving Take Two!

As most of us are trimming our trees and getting our homes ready for Christmas, those who live and walk on Central Park West got to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade again. Well, sort of.

On Sunday afternoon, The Husband and I bundled up to check out the Columbus Circle Outdoor Holiday Shops (which, by the way are great and I will post later on this). As we passed Central Park West, we both glanced uptown and saw this:
What the? But, Thanksgiving was over a week ago! I know. We walked over to the "parade" and saw hundreds of people cheering on the Turkey float with actors in costumes marching. It was just like the real thing except they were filming the movie, Tower Heist. When the director yelled "Action!" we all cheered like we were really watching the parade, but we had to cheer in pantomime so the camera could hear the actors clearly. It still amazes me how that many people in a city as loud as NY can all hush when directed.

Pretty cool NY moment.

  1. Wow! That is so cool! Yes, hard to believe New Yorkers can actually be "shushed."
