Yankees Victory Parade To Snarl Traffic in Brooklyn, Too

The Yankees victory ticker-tape parade down the "Canyon of Heroes" begins on Friday, 11 a.m. The parade route will start on Broadway at Battery Place and continue northbound to Chambers Street. The victory march will be followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza.

Expect traffic to be snarled not only in Manhattan but in Brooklyn as well. Community Board 6 sent out the following:

The New York Yankees Victory Parade is expected to cause heavy delays for Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel traffic in either direction on Friday, November 6th from 9 AM until approximately 3 PM. The tunnel will remain open, but delays are expected due to Lower Manhattan street closures in effect for the parade and, of course, the anticipated crowds.

Please use public mass transit if you can. For more information visit:
