Mayor Bill de Blasio said people are welcome to walk to the parade route and see the action in person.
“I think it will be a good crowd, but I don’t think it will necessarily be a huge crowd,” he said on Tuesday. “I think you’re going to see a lot of people coming to support their fellow New Yorkers. The important thing was that as soon as we could reopen the city, the first thing we had to do was honor the people who had brought us here. I think it’s gonna be a nice party.
