Ok.. so... My mom has been on me for years to go to the Macy's thanksgiving day parade... This year, I'm finally going to take the plunge, freeze my ass off all day, and take her. Has anyone ever gone to see it... and if so, do you have any tips for me? I've been doing a little research on the net this morning... Found that there is the Time Warner Center @ columbus circle that has glass windows.. but I have a feeling that my mom would rather have the actual experience of being closer to the parade. My BF said he went once when he was REALLY young.. and they were there at like 6am... and his dad was smart by stationing themselves in front of a deli? I know we'll be there early... and to dress in layers.. bring blankets, check the weather for rain... Does anyone have any other tips? What about WHERE we should be stationed for this thing? I sorta think that while it'll be really crowded there, that my mom will want to be pretty close to Macy's... even though a lot of websites are telling me to be on Central Park West between 65th and 70th. Anyone been there? have any advice! Help!
