Sketching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- the quintessential New York City autumn experience, right? Oddly enough, I lived in Manhattan for several years and never saw it except on television. On Thursday I made up for that! Snagged a fairly prime viewing location, near 72nd Street and Central Park West.

Couldn't see a lot of the street-level action from our vantage point, but the balloons looked glorious as they sailed past the buildings.

The weather could not have been better, and the enthusiasm was infectious as we struck up impromptu conversations with fellow parade-watchers. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
