Getting back to business here…

I have a few days off this week, so I’ve been working hard the last couple of days to get this site updated. I’ve installed a new blogging platform behind the scenes (based on the Genesis system for WordPress), and updated a couple of older posts. The category “Daily Notes” has been renamed as my Blog, and I hope to post here much more frequently in the future. The home page will still feature major articles, updated less frequently than the blog but hopefully more often than they have been the last six months. I’ve got a number of posts in progress, so you’ll see more here soon.

    I will be leading a six bus move to the Macy’s Parade. Any suggestion will be appreciated. We will be touring everyday and needing layover spots for several hours at the time. This is the first time I’ve seen your blog and it is really interesting. I’ll be back

    • Garry, I did that trip last Thanksgiving. As I recall, getting in and out of the city was easy — very light traffic, as the parade is pretty much the only thing happening in midtown. Stay on the west side of the city — Broadway and part of Seventh Avenue will be closed for the parade. That area will be packed — tell your people to get to their viewing spot as early as possible, as crowds will be very deep along the parade route, with curb positions almost impossible to get. But since the major floats are actually floating in the air, there are lots of good views. Parking should be available in the bus parking areas — see the Holiday Parking Guide I just posted a link to today. Most of the police will be along the parade route, not ticketing buses (I hope) in case you can’t find legal parking. Here’s a link to the parade route and other info, if you haven’t seen it: http://social.macys.com/parade2010/#/route
