Columbus Day

Hello, could I get an idea of how much on an impact Columbus Day will have on NYC? Will any shops or activities be affected or just normal business? Any tips on good locations to view the parade? We will be in town for the first time so are looking forward to experiencing an American parade!

Thanks

For the most part, it will be like a weekend(some would say a regular day)...EXCEPT for the areas around the parade route. That should not stop you from coming and enjoying the city.

You probably won't notice any difference. Many of us don't even get the day off. :(

Also, the Columbus Day parade is nothing like the Thanksgiving Day parade or the Halloween Parade. I think it is primarily marching bands. Worth a stop for 20 minutes, but not something to arrange your day around.

Wow, thanks for the quick responses! Shame we'll be gone before the Halloween and Thanksgiving parades!
