It’s hard to tell because last year I was actually marching in the parade together with my university. This is my first year viewing the parade from the audience’s perspective.

Impressed. This year had a nice turnout. It helps that the weather was very accommodating as well. I was impressed to see all the different groups marching and the different communities coming together. It’s clear that people still come here every year to show their support. People gather here from all different boroughs for a good cause.

Impressed. It was a nice turnout. I come here every year and I find that every year it gets better and better. There’s a great ruach in this crowd.
