The New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade will step a little livelier Friday, March 17, as the

New York Police Department plans to limit cross-town traffic, reducing the number of times the

parade is stopped to allow traffic to cross.

This means the parade will move more quickly. People marching in the parade should

check the Parade Line of March at https://www.nycstpatricksparade.org/2017lomindex/ to see

where their group is assembling and at what time the group will step off onto Fifth Avenue.

Pedestrians will be allowed to cross Fifth Avenue only at the following streets:

49th Street

50th Street (West only)

51st Street

54th Street

57th Street

58th Street

59th Street

60th Street

65th Street

66th Street

72nd Street

78th Street

80th Street

84th Street

85th Street

This year’s Grand Marshal is Michael J. Dowling, a native of County Limerick, and

President & CEO of Northwell Health. This year’s Parade honors Catholic Charities and the

New York State Police, which both are celebrating their 100th anniversary of helping New

Yorkers in need.


The New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is broadcast live on WNBC-TV 4, Friday, March 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
