A Very New York St. Patty’s Day
Hoping for the luck o’ the Irish? Perhaps an Irishman yourself? or maybe you just really love the color GREEN?
Regardless of your reasons, today is the day to celebrate St. Patrick in your finest shades of evergreen, mint, jungle green, Kelly green, perhaps even seafoam. As any proper North Eastern city should, New York offers diverse options for celebrating, ranging from good clean fun to, well, not good clean fun.
Please see highlights below:
St. Patrick’s Day Parade: 11am, starting at 44th and 5th Avenue, featuring the who’s who of the Catholic Church, bagpipers, and step dancers.
