Went To The Giants' Celebrations? Tell Us About It

The Giants held a parade in Manhattan and a celebration at MetLife Stadium on Tuesday. Did you go?

Two Tuesday celebrations - one in New Jersey and one in New York City - commemorated the Giants over the Patriots in the Super Bowl on Tuesday.

We want to know who went, and we'd like to hear about your experiences, whether you went to the city or up to the Meadowlands.

The celebration began with a parade in New York that, according to WPIX, started at 11 a.m. at Battery Place and Washington Street and went through the Canyon of Heroes to Worth Street.

A ceremony was then held at City Hall, where the members of Big Blue will receive keys to the city. 

Gov. Chris Christie announced on Monday that a separate rally would be held Tuesday at 3 p.m. for the Giants at their home stadium. 

If you went, we'd love to hear your stories and see your pictures.

Yes I agree with you Pat, what a shame

Isn't the 1st amendment wonderful? Thanks to our vets, we still have a bill of rights. The parade isn't for any politicians...it is for our vets, their families, and for average citizens as away to show their appreciation. Its a shame we live in society where people think such displays of thanks and patriotism are "nonsense" and "window dressing". Instead of pissing way $80 on an NFL jersey, make a donation to a worthy veterans charity. http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?keyword_list=veterans&bay=search.results&EIN=&cgid=&cuid=&location=2&stid=&city=&Submit=Submit&sortby=rtg

Too bad the parade didn't pass by Zuccotti Park. A float full of wealthy athletes would have received a "warm" welcome.

A parade is nonsense when compared to real world needs. It's like giving someone a pat on the back when what they really need is a raise or better benefits. What good is a parade when you have vets (a good number with life-changing injuries) who need real support from the government. A parade doesn't put food on the table and doesn't give you a job. Showing appreciation in a parade is nice - it just doesn't solve any of a person's real-world issues.

...I guess you missed my link to the highest-rated charities that help our vets in need? Parades are only "dumb" when they celebrate false heroes.
