Getting around Lower Manhattan will be a challenge Tuesday due to the ticker-tape parade celebrating the Giants Super Bowl win. Some subway stops and roads are expected to be closed.
Starting at 10 a.m., the 4 and 5 Trains won't stop at Fulton or Wall Streets. The A and C Trains won't stop at Chambers or Fulton Street either. The E Train's last stop will be the Canal Street Station and won't continue on to the World Trade Center. The R Train won't stop at the City Hall station.
The Transit Authority suggests straphangers who use the 4, 5 and 6 train use the Brooklyn Bridge/Chambers Street stop. Riders who use the R train can still get on at Cortland Street and Rector Street. And anyone who relies on the A, C and E can instead use the 1, 2 or 3 at the Wall Street, South Ferry or Fulton Street stops.
The PATH train is also expected to run additional trains to get Giants fans from New Jersey to Lower Manhattan.
The following streets in Manhattan will be closed to vehicular traffic Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the parade:
· State Street between Whitehall and Broadway
· Battery Place between 3rd Place and Broadway
· Broadway between State Street and Worth Street/Chambers Street
· Reade Street between Broadway and Centre Street
· Worth Street between Broadway and Centre Street
· Centre Street and Lafayette Street between Worth Street and Chambers Street
· Warren Street, Murray Street, Park Place and Barclay Street between Broadway and Church Street
Street closures are subject to change at the discretion of NYPD.
Delays are also expected at the Lower East River crossings and the Holland Tunnel.
The Giants motorcade will take the team up the "Canyon of Heroes," from Battery Place to Worth Street. Festivities begin at 11 a.m and Mayor Michael Bloomberg said up to a million people could attend.
