NYC To Celebrate Giants Super Bowl Win With Ticker-Tape Parade

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Giants fans get ready for a parade!

New Yorkers will welcome their Super Bowl heroes back to the Big Apple with a ticker-tape parade and ceremony Tuesday in Manhattan.

LISTEN: 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reports

Tuesday’s sunny forecast could draw more than the one million spectators who braved the rainy parade day four years ago.

“I’ve been a Giants fan for 50 some, odd years. It’s just something I’ve never done. I enjoy being part of the Giants. Watching the Giants it really brings my family together. I’m bringing my son tomorrow. It’s just something we really look forward to,” fan Joe Guarino told CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez.

“Big Blue gave us a game to remember and on Tuesday, we’re going to give them a parade to remember,” said Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Crews have already started building the stage for Tuesday’s celebration, which includes a ceremony at City Hall where Bloomberg will present the team with a key to the city.

Giants fans are already looking for ways to make it down to the parade.

Behind a tall fence on a quiet residential street in Clifton, about five miles from the Meadowlands, they put the letters on the floats that will say “Super Bowl” in Tuesday’s parade.

A crew of ten at Bond Parade was here hammering and stapling and sawing almost as soon as the big game ended.

“We started at 3 in morning,” said Robert DeVito, who owns the company.

About 50 tons of confetti are expected to rain down during the parade.  Some of that confetti will come in the form of donated paper from a recycling vendor in Brooklyn.  WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell spoke with workers with the Downtown Alliance, who loaded the paper into bags.

“We bring them to the various buildings along Broadway,” said Joe Timpone of the Downtown Alliance.

“Hopefully my boss won’t see me like Ferris Bueller on the TV,” one man said.

“I live right here, so I’ll kind of look at it from the edges and say congratulations to everybody involved,” said Giants fan Douglas Levison.

“I’m expecting just tons of confetti coming down and just enjoy the day,” said Giants fan Harris Love.

About 50,000 people went online to get tickets to the City Hall ceremony after the parade.  The 250 people who got them feel very fortunate, CBS 2’s Don Dahler reported.

“My co-worker sent me the link to register, I’m like ‘Yeah, I’d love to’ and I won,” said one lucky winner.

    to tie up all of downtown Manhattan during morning rush hour for a ticker tape parade is absurd. i’m not saying there should not be a celebration or parade but it should be in the Meadowlands.

    1. Loser rich says:

      Idiot Giants do not play at Meadowlands

  2. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx says:

    MAYOR BLOOMBERG the Mayor of NYC supports men who are interested in other mens rectums so how can you go to this parade.

  3. Synthitics says:

    If I want to see a New York football team play I’ll drive to Buffalo.

  4. Robert Moses says:

    The folks who complain about the “New York” Giants playing in New Jersey are forgetting that no city is ever entitled to its own viability. The ONE AND ONLY purpose of any city is to subsidize its suburbs, whether by direct payments, becoming a conduit for suburban traffic, preferential hiring of suburbanites for all city jobs, or hosting a parade for a suburban sports franchise.

    New Yorkers MUST subsidize New Jersey, and they MUST NOT complain about it. Period.

    1. TG L says:

      So you are claiming that new jersey is a suburb of New York? You have no idea about the concept of federalism do you?

      Everything is hitting the fan anyway so who even cares anymore. Just stock up on guns and butter and get everything on this list.
      http://rlaframboise.hubpages.com/hub/FoundingFathersQuotesReligionGovernment

      1. Robert Moses says:

        Federalism is irrelevant. The quiet and pristine neighborhoods with low-density housing stock make (northern) New Jersey a suburb, and geography makes it a suburb of NYC.

  5. RED LIGHT NEW YORKER says:

    LET ME TRY TO UNDERSTAND THIS. THE NY GIANTS PRACTICE AND PLAY IN NEW JERSEY. THE NEW YORK GIANTS DEPEND ON FANS FROM NY TO GO TO THEIR HOME GAMES, BUY TICKETS, HOT DOGS, BEER, SODA AND MERCHANDISE. NEW JERSEY GETS ALL THE TAX DOLLARS FROM THIS BUSINESS, PLUS ANY TOLL FEES THAT ARE PAID FROM FANS CROSSING THE RIVER TO WATCH THEM PLAY. THEY GET A TICKER TAPE PARADE THAT IS PAID FOR FROM DONATIONS FROM PEOPLE AND COMPANIES LOCATED IN NYC, THE KEY TO THE CITY AND WHAT DO THE TAX PAYERS FROM NEW YORK GET. OH THAT’S RIGHT WE GET TO CALL THEM THE NEW YORK GIANTS…..BIG F U * K I N G DEAL…. LET THEM MARCH AROUND THEIR NEW STADIUM AND CHANGE THEIR NAME TO THE NEW JERSEY GIANTS. THEN LET’S SEE HOW MUCH MERCHANDISE A FAN FROM NEW YORK WOULD PURCHASE IF THEY EVER GO TO THEIR GAMES. WHO THE F U * K WOULD EVEN WEAR A SHIRT WITH THE NAME NEW JERSEY ON IT….

    1. new_yorkz_finest says:

      I don’t give a sh!t if a bunch of pvssies on steroids, hormones and meth live to knock their heads together. When will the taxpayer stop subsidizing it all. NYC and Wall Street provoked 911. Congratulations.

  6. MAYOR MIKE IS A POS says:

    ONLY BAD THING ABOUT THIS,IS THE DOUCE “MAYOR” WILL BE FRONT AND CENTER TO SHARE HIS ARROGANT POINT OF VIEW……..

  7. Sandy says:

    Way to go NY a parade for a football team but no parade for the servicemen
    returning home from war. Whats wrong with this picture are the Giants going to protect us in a case of war?

  8. Go Giants says:

    I agree we need a parade for the Giants it will help some of the busineses in the city make some money.

  9. Deborah Jeffries says:

    Excuse me moron, if you’re going to impersonate me at least use a more sophisticated vocabulary and not the typical sexist I’m a woman and a badger. If people in America think these players are heroes, I weep for the future and first responders didn’t get paid to die on 9/11. THEY WERE MURDERED.

  10. sammy says:

    a New Jersey team should have their parade in New Jersey
    Maybe thru Newark?
    All the revenue the New Jersey Giants bring into the state of New Jersey and thats where the parade should be held. Plain and simple.

    1. brendon says:

      check the agreements made when the New York Football Giants agreed to play in a stadium in New Jersey…By the way, your welcome for that revenue

    2. Native New Yorker says:

      They’re a NEW JERSEY team, so NEW JERSEY should pay for the parade. There’s no reason why CITY taxpayers should subsidize the suburbs by footing the bill for this.

      1. true new yorker says:

        City tax payers are paying zero for parade it is all donor funded. Do research before you post a comment.

        1. Native New Yorker says:

          Nobody is reporting the “donor” thing except for you.

          1. Real New Yorker says:

            Thanks to Duane Reade Toyota and Hackensack medical center for covering cost of parade.A little reserch goes a long way.WHY SPREAD LIES

            1. Native New Yorker says:

              According to http://www.nyc.gov, it’s just an “offset.” Beyond that first tax-deductible dollar, WE THE PEOPLE are still paying.

              1. No cost zero zilch says:

                Nope it is all covered.From police to clean-up no cost.And city will make money with all the spending and boost to economy it is bringing.Win win for the City just accept it.

  11. Deborah Jeffries says:

    Who are the real heroes in NYC? The 9/11 first responders who were lucky enough to have survived, but have been suffering with debilitating illness and had to fight the government red tape for years to get medical treatment and benefits they deserve. Football players are paid millions every year and don’t know what a real job is. They are not heroes.

    1. HOPOFF says:

      stop with that b.s we get it. jesus let us live

      1. Deborah Jeffries says:

        No! I will continue to badger and harangue as only a woman can do.

      2. Dawn says:

        No, let THEM live!!!! First responders are dying left and right. Maybe we should ignore you when your dying.

  12. Rich says:

    Any web site(s) announce that they will broadcast the Manhatten and MetLife Stadium events live?

    1. Salón Benito says:

      Ayer domingo me prepare para ver por TV el juego de NFL super bowl,
      era mi primer juego que me he interesado. Por suerted estaba acompañado
      por un hijo que si sabia los pormenores del juego. El show de intermedio,
      con sus tecnicas, a mi entender y de lo que saben de juego NFL, ha sido
      formidable en todo sentido. Congratulaciones para los NY Giants. Ahora,
      eso si, estoy preparado para asistir al desfile del friunfo.

  13. JustWondering says:

    Did Bloomy clear this parade with Chris Christie?

  14. AmenToThat says:

    When they pass Zuccotti Park, the Giants should stop, and reenact Tebow’s move.

  15. Fiscally Responsible Person says:

    This will be the last year that we will have this kind of parade, unless City workers agree to pay more for their medical coverage and agree to pension reform. The City cannot afford to stage these parades, indefinitely.

    1. Read more you wont look stupid says:

      The city is not paying for this parade it is funded by private donors.I hate when people who are clueless post.

      1. Native New Yorker says:

        Please CITE where private donors are paying.

        Every news story I’ve seen about the parade is silent on who’s paying the bills, so it stands to reason that it’s CITY taxpayers who are subsidizing a NEW JERSEY team.

        1. Economy booster says:

          Just like the last new york giants parade it is payed for by donors sponsors of parade.Just like Macys pays their parade and yankees are donor funded so is this.Just be happy about all the taxes and boost to economy NYC will see tommorow they will make 5 times what parade cost.

          1. Native New Yorker says:

            Still no CITE (i.e. an active link) showing paid donations to cover parade costs.

            Remember that all of the police and sanitation coverage will be (1) MASSIVE and (2) on OVERTIME. That alone will eat up any minuscule gain that the City might see.

            1. Parade is not on taxpayers says:

              The cost is being covered by Duane Reade Toyota and Hckensack Medical Center and some others that were not posted as of yet

              1. ny_sux says:

                Retards like you are the reason amerika will never return to the free market. Unless you’re telling me Rack ‘n Sack refuses billions in federal healthcare financing outlays. Nevermind, you’re a retard. We need a single, unified, national healthcare plan now!
                You’re right about Toyota. Gummint only buys from the p!ss-@ss Big 3 Derturd automakers. Have a great day!

              2. Native New Yorker says:

                A couple of dollars and a name on a float are nothing compared to the MILLIONS OF DOLLARS in police and sanitation overtime that WE THE PEOPLE will still be stuck paying.

                1. WE have a Debbie Downer here says:

                  COST is only around $350 to $500 thousand for parade but it is paid for and then some.What about OWS it was not funded and cost us for months everyday.Lets enjoy free parade and let the economy get a little boost anything counts.I hate the Debbie Downers on this site.

    2. Salón Benito says:

      El comentario del “RESPONSABLE FISCALMENTE”, no se ajusta a
      ninguna verdad. En el sentido, que los gastos ocasionados por desfile
      equipo ganador del super bowl NY-GIANTS, es costeado por una
      entidad privada, de ninguna manera los gastos serian cubierto por las
      autoridades de la ciudad. Que siga para siempre los desfiles de los
      ganadores del NY GIANTS. Ojala fuesen siempre ganadores.

  16. Bullett says:

    Is it too soon to think “repeat”?

    1. Bullett says:

      My co-worker just asked me, has anyone heard from T.O.?

  17. Super Bowl Champs says:

    I wonder if all those frigging Giants fans who wanted Coughlin fired the last few years also celebrated the Giants victory.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they did. Hypocrites

    1. flea says:

      I agree. 6 weeks ago, everybody wanted everybody fired.

  18. lieutenantdan says:

    Sweet!
    Yes it is true that Brady has allot to be thankful for but a person of his nature feels privileged and can never feel as they have enough. It is a great feeling for me as a native New Yorker to see any New England team beaten by any team but a NY win is SO SWEET!
    New Englanders truly believe that they are better than everyone else on this planet. So wonderful to see them one again proven wrong.

    To the victor go the spoils!
    Go Giants!

    1. sammy says:

      Oh on a side note. More proof the Mayor is a puts

  19. joseph says:

    Giants have an opportunity to show alot of class by sharing their parade with war vets,first responders.maybe split cost of parade with city?

    1. G.I Joe says:

      You think the people in Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and all those gun ho war, I love America states would also chip in as well.

      They’re the reason we’re in this war to begin with. They believe we should handle everything with a war & not peace. We will not send our sons they say, but please send yours to protect my country.

  20. joseph says:

    SO IS STUPIDITY, jackass !

    1. A "Going Postal" Worker says:

      Joseph – you are 100% correct.
      “Very Conservative” probably has the IQ of a tomato. For someone who’s so obsessed with bashing non-conservatives, maybe he should find a wire-tapping job on Fox news (or maybe he should just find any job).

  21. J.P. Skelly says:

    I plan on it! All the way from Mitchell, South Dakota! G-Men rock!

  22. A "Going Postal" Worker says:

    I have to say, while Bellichek (as usual) shows little class in defeat, I confess that I am positively surprised by Tom Brady. I am a lifelong Giants fan – and the Patriots could have won (another razor-thin game) – even though the referees were up to their usual “stupidity” against the Giants (like that bogus “holding” call).

    Brady has nothing to be ashamed of – he’s rich, he has a hot wife (who’d do better to keep her mouth shut more often). Besides, all of Boston’s professional sports franchises have won at least 1 championship in the last 10 years (give another city a chance, eh?). In fact, the only other thing I have to say is
    GIANTS
    GIANTS
    GIANTS
    GIANTS
    GIANTS
    GIANTS!!

    Go G-men – you guys are amazing – New York loves you!

    1. JJ says:

      Have the parade in New JERSEY
      New JERSEY
      New JERSEY
      New JERSEY
      New JERSEY
      NEW JERSEY!!

      From a Giants fan who lives in New YORK City and is “going postal” right now because you seem to support ANOTHER parade for them while 9/11 responders and newest war Vets are being denied such. You must be either a politician masquerading as a regular citizen or some 3-letter word that will get my comment deleted (or both).

      1. Postal says:

        JJ, you’re an idiot. DYNOMITE!!!!!!!!!!

      2. A "Going Postal" Worker says:

        JJ – I have some advice for you – don’t do drugs.

      3. T says:

        Tell your fat governor to build a canyon of heroes first.

      4. val says:

        Here is the problem with having a parade in New Jersey: Only people from NJ will go! Where exactly would you have it? Will people have to drive there? There are more people who come to NYC to work and it’s easier to get there with mass transportation for people from NJ, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, etc. It makes more sense, period. Besides, even though they play in NJ, they are called the NEW YORK GIANTS!

        1. Native New Yorker says:

          It doesn’t matter what the team is called because they play in NEW JERSEY. That alone makes them a NEW JERSEY team, so NEW JERSEY should pay for the parade. Period.

  23. Joe Fonebone says:

    Interesting how quickly Bloomberg throws together a parade for the Giants, but won’t consider one for the returned Iraq War Veterans. The guy’s a loser.

    1. Read before you comment says:

      Hey Joe do you read much The Giants are covering the cost of parade so what does this have to do with Bloomberg and the Vets.New York is cash strapped so we should lay off teachers to have a Iraq war Parade.Form a group raise half a million and have a parade.

      1. JJ says:

        I find it very hard to believe that the Giants are paint for the parade. Pretty much like someone throwing a b-day party for themselves. Now how often does that happen?

        1. JJ says:

          **paying NOT “paint….god damn auto-correct

        2. NYC pays zero says:

          Yes they raised money through donors.Just read a little and you will see there are other papers to read .NYC after all said and down is paying 0.And look at all the business it will bring in to local bars and restaurants it is win win for the city.

          1. Native New Yorker says:

            Nobody is reporting that. Therefore, it stands to reason that CITY TAXPAYERS are yet again required to subsidize New Jersey.

            1. economy booster says:

              I think u never lived in NYC all the yankee and giants parades were all sponsored dont you see on floats the advertisements.You cannot be that dumb to think in this economy city would pay I mean really.I googled and found out cost and donors of previous parades you should do the same.

              1. Native New Yorker says:

                Slapping a name on a float is NOT the same as reimbursing the City for MILLIONS OF DOLLARS of police and sanitation overtime.

      2. Joe Fonebone says:

        So, basically you are saying that the Vets should raise the funds necessary to have a parade in their own honor or lay off teachers to pay for it. Absurd.

    2. david says:

      You took the words right out of my mouth.

  24. sandra probert says:

    I am a New York City retired teacher who has a handicapped child who would like to go to the parade tom. I keep calling 212-311 and keep getting a message ….the number is not in service. I know that everyone thinks only city people who are able bodied go to parade but you are not making Nrw York accessible just like the school I taught in. Handicapped people should have the same accessibility as others. If you read this please respond ASAP. Thank you, Sandra Probert at probertsandy@hotmail.com

    1. Native New Yorker says:

      The number is simply “311” (no area code) within 5 boroughs or 212-NEW-YORK outside the city.

      You can also try the city’s web site (www.nyc.gov).
