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:
50th Street (West only)
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.
