Photo by myself along the Canyon of Heroes, around Broadway and Rector Street.
The Canyon of Heroes is the parade route for large tickertape parades in the city, held for New York sports teams and notable figures. The area is named for the parades for New York heroes and the 'canyon' created by the tall buildings and narrow street. Confetti rains down from buildings along lower Broadway between Battery Park and City Hall.
Each parade since 1886, over 200 in all, is commemorated with a granite strip and stainless steel lettering embedded in the sidewalk.
Walking up Broadway, you can read through the history of New York. Click here to read more about the plaques along lower Broadway.
I took a close up photo of one of the granite markers, here.
