253rd NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade


New York City's Saint Patrick's Day parade dates back to 1762- 14 years before the declaration of USA's independence and today is considered as the largest parade in the world. Road closures for this year's parade will include: Fifth Avenue between 42nd street and 86th street and Madison Avenue between 63rd Street and 64 Street. The parade is held in honor of the Patron Saint of Ireland and the Archdiocese of New York and is reviewed from the steps of Saint Patrick's Cathedral by the Archbishop of New York. It starts at 44th Street, marching up to Fifth Avenue past St. Patrick's Cathedral ending at the Irish Historical Society in 79th Street. The Waze community has updated the map with significant road closures and will continue to add hazards as they unfold in real-time.
