This Saturday, November 27, there will be a parade of decorated boats, including, it is reported, a tugboat towing a 70′ tall lighted Christmas tree on a barge, that will leave the Chelsea piers on the west side of Manhattan at about 6:30 p.m., proceed down the Hudson to near the Statue of Liberty, then through the Governors Island Channel into the East River. The parade is scheduled to be passing Brooklyn Bridge Park from 7:15 to 7:30 (presumably this means Pier 1, which will be the ideal location from which to watch the parade, although it will also be visible from the Promenade). The boats will reverse direction just north of the Manhattan Bridge and sail back down the East River, passing South Street Seaport at about 7:30 to 7:45. There’s more about the parade, including a map of the parade route, here.
