    but where on the east river…sometimes it is up by 50th street, which makes it not visible from BH?

    According to CBS Local, they will be in both downtown (near South Street Seaport) and midtown locations this year.

    From the NY Times yesterday:

    This year, there will be five barges, according to Macy’s, which produces the show: four between 23rd and 37th Streets in Midtown Manhattan and one double-barge below the Brooklyn Bridge.

    great…thanks…i wonder if that means it won’t be centered to the promenade and will focus more to the right of the bridge.

    Well either way…let the crowds begin!
