Giants parade could draw up to 1M spectators to Lower Manhattan
The Giants aren't the only ones scoring from their Super Bowl victory.
The city will get a significant economic boost when an estimated 500,000 to 1 million fans pour into lower Manhattan on Tuesday for the G-Men's parade, according to the mayor's office. That translates to:
* Between $19 million and $38 million in economic activity as a result of the event.
* "Multiple tons" of confetti. The Giant's 2008 Super Bowl parade featured 36.5 tons.
* The 2008 parade cost a reported $331,000. This year's cost is being offset by parade sponsors, the mayor's office said.
The parade begins at 11 a.m. and will touch off at Battery Place and Washington Street, going up Broadway to City Hall Plaza.
