...i'm a complete curmudgeon
i offer this evidence.
caught without my camera
i had to rely on the iPhone.
if you find yourself in the city
on thanksgiving day
and the parade route doesn't change
you could do worse than grab a cup of coffee
at bouchon bakery
and watch the parade from the vantage point
of the A/X store at the time warner center
you do see the back end of the balloons
but it's warm and uncrowded.
