The 2005 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

These photos of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade were taken by me on November 24, 2005 from an apartment overlooking Columbus Circle in New York City. The high vantage point will be unfamiliar to most viewers. It gives a good sense of the scale of the event, and it's great to see how many people enjoy the parade from viewing stands,balconies, windows, and the street. These photos and videos represent only a small selection of the balloons and floats and they were taken during the latter part of the Parade that day.
