It may be hard to believe, but St. Patrick’s Day is just two months away. We’re two months from the bagpipers walking up 5th avenue, two months from seeing green on every street corner, and just two months from Irishmen across the city enjoying pints of Guinness at their local pub. What a wonderful time of year.
The highlight of St. Patrick’s Day in New York City is the parade, and the 2013 St. Patrick’s Day parade is sure to thrill all. The best part is, the route is the same as last year and the year before that. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade will begin on 44th Street and 5th Avenue in Midtown and travel straight uptown past St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Rockefeller Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art to 86th street. That’s it. No twists or turns, just the simplest parade route of any NYC holiday.
