Royalty Tribute

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There will be several places around the City where you can watch the royal wedding this Friday.

A royal block party is being planned outside Nicky Perry’s Tea & Sympathy restaurant on Greenwich Avenue.

WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reports.

“It’s all I’ve done for the last month it’s been unbelievable. It’s like royal wedding central,” Perry said. “We’re going to be up, I’m sure, all night, because we’re going to decorate the block with bunting, and we can’t do that the night before.”

The festivities begin at 6 a.m.

“The most exciting thing will be the dress. The second most exciting thing will be the kiss on the balcony because, do you know the first royal couple to kiss on the balcony was Charles and Diana?” she said.

“I can’t wait to see the dress. I just want to take it all in,” one patron said.

Perry regards the royal wedding as a tribute to Princess Diana.

“I think it just destroyed people emotionally. I know it did for me, and I think that this is now the opportunity for us all to get behind her son and wish him happiness,” she said.

Perry was expecting hundreds to attend the party on this side of the pond. Champagne included.

“I’m probably going to have 8 million drunk and disorderly people out here. Thank goodness I get along with the Sixth Precinct,” she said.
