Grab a hot chocolate and pack a breakfast to eat alfresco while staking out a spot at watch the 86th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which starts at 77th Street and Central Park West at 9 a.m. and continues down to Macy’s on 34th Street on Thanksgiving Day. Crowds start forming before sunrise and there is very little food sold along the route, so make sure to bring something of your own. Avoid grabbing a spot on Sixth Avenue between 34th and 38th Streets, where the vantage points are limited due to television filming.
