New York City Prepares for Thanksgiving Celebrations
As families gather, New York City gets ready to jump start the holiday season with the 90th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
New York police officers block traffic from entering 56th Street at 6th Avenue along the Macy's Parade route, except for residential and business vehicles, a block from Trump Tower. More than 80 sanitation trucks filled with sand will be used along a 2 1/2 mile route of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade to create an imposing physical barrier to terror. The trucks have been used like this before - most recently to protect Trump Tower.
