You can now experience over a century of history with the push of a button!

Since 1886, New York City has been throwing ticker-tape parades that highlighted notable historical events and some of the extraordinary people that made them possible. Athletes, politicians, soldiers, world leaders, and many more have been honored on this famous path. The Canyon of Heroes runs its course down Broadway in Lower Manhattan paying tribute with these famous parades.

The Downtown Alliance for New York now offers an app dedicated to the trail and those it has celebrated. It is organized to help you gain the most out of your walk through history. Learn more about all the granite panels as you pass right by them with this free and interactive app!
