Ticker-tape parade for women’s soccer team tomorrow!
Whether you love a parade or not, one’s coming: starting tomorrow at 9:30 at The Battery, to honor the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team — FIFA World Cup champions after their recent stint in France.
The Downtown Alliance is now the steward for ticker-tape parades, and since there’s no longer any ticker tape, the folks there bag up and distribute one TON of shredded paper for those lucky enough to still be able to open a window along Broadway.
The team will then proceed to City Hall, where they will get keys to the city and hearty congrats from the mayor. They should be at City Hall by 10:30 or 11, if you are planning your trip east. The Downtown Connection bus service will be suspended for the day.

Come share your support for this phenomenal team in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday at 9:30a with a Ticker Tape Parade down Broadway. NOTE: Downtown Connection bus service will be suspended on Wednesday, July 10 due to the Ticker-Tape Parade for the U.S. Women’s National Team’s World Cup win and NYPD street closures.
