If the crazed crowds, projected low of 25 degrees Fahrenheit, and scary Black Friday mobs still don’t hinder your urge to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade in person, here are some transit tips.
On Thanksgiving Day, trains and buses will be running on a Sunday schedule. The parade runs from 9:00 a.m. until 12 p.m.
Parade Route: According to the MTA website, the parade starts on West 77 St and heads down Central Park West to 59 St/Columbus Circle. It travels along Central Park South and Sixth Av to 34 St. The parade then turns west to end at Seventh Avenue in front of the famous Macy’s Department store in Herald Square.
Take the D train, departing every 15 minutes, up to 34 St, Herald Square, or 59 St-Columbus Circle.
Take the N train, departing every 15 minutes, up to 34 St, Herald Square, Times Square, 42 St, or 49 St.
Take the F train, departing every 19 minutes, up to W4 St, then transfer to the A Line to 59 St-Columbus Circle, or the D Line(see above).
