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. It seems about the same as last year. It’s a totally different experience participating in the parade on the other side of the gate.

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.

Some people have commented that the crowd seems smaller than last year’s, but I don’t find that to be true. This year’s enthusiasm seems stronger than last year’s, and people seem more involved.
- Avi Laub, financial services
Impressed. I’m finding that each year schools are doing a better job of getting organized. The crowd seems to really be enjoying the parade.
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.
