New York

Sorry to rain on your parade…

The New York Times reports that the NYC police department is ordering that parades be shortened in order to save taxpayer money! Sounds like   a good idea to me…

Interestingly it seems its not the length of the Parade that matters most to people. The Macy’s Day Parade on Thanksgiving is actually just about 2 hours, making it a small hog of police resources, even though it is arguably the biggest parade event associated with New York.

So sometimes less is more!
