Photo by myself around Fifth Avenue and 35th Street, in Midtown.
Some snaps from the Veteran's Day Parade on Thursday. Luckily, my schedule worked out so I could escape the office.
The parade was sparsely attended as usual, since the day fell on a weekday and businesses were open. Onlookers gave their humble thanks to those who have represented this country in combat.
American flags were on display along the parade route on Fifth Avenue between 23rd Street and 59th Street. It was particularly nice to see high school kids involved in the parade. The mix between young and old made this a parade for everyone.
Enormous flags were pulled down the street.
Most veterans represented the Vietnam War, Korean War and World War II.
It was impressive to see some veterans in full uniform.
Various high school bands marched with pride.
