There are many famous traditions synonymous with New York City, and Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is at the top of that list. The first parade marched down Broadway in the winter of 1924, and in the years since, it’s grown into an event with more than 3.5 million spectators. After a television-only event last year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is returning this year with in-person spectators. Ahead, learn all about the parade’s 97 years and see some incredible archival photos.

With the arrival of this year’s Rockefeller Christmas Tree in Midtown, the holiday season in New York City has officially begun. Donated by a family in Elkton, Maryland, the 79-foot-tall Norway spruce was cut down last week, hoisted by a crane, and arrived in Manhattan this weekend following a roughly 140-mile journey via flatbed truck. Considered one of the world’s most famous holiday trees, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree will be decorated with thousands of multi-colored lights and a sparkling star topper. The official lighting ceremony is planned for Wednesday, December 1.

The understated estate on beautifully landscaped grounds at 12 Battle Road overlooking Princeton University’s Graduate College anchors one of the town’s finest residential streets. It’s an address befitting the home’s original owner, George B. McClellan, Jr., former congressman and the 93rd mayor of New York City. The three-story house (plus a one-bedroom apartment atop the home’s three-car garage), on the market for $3.5 million, strikes a balance between magnificent historic details–like the same marble tiles used in Grand Central Station in the entry hall–and livable 21st-century luxury.

270 affordable apartments available at a luxury Long Island City tower on the East River

  • By Devin Gannon

Waterfront luxury living in New York City doesn’t have to be out of reach. Located on the East River in Hunter’s Point South, Gotham Point is a mixed-use complex with over 1,100 apartments, 75 percent of which are priced below the market rate. Applications are now being accepted for 270 rent-stabilized apartments at the Long Island City development’s South tower. The building is open to New Yorkers with a wide range of household income levels, between 30 percent and 165 percent of the area median income (AMI), or between $15,806 and $244,200 annually. That means a single person who earns between $15,806 and $25,090 annually would pay $738/month for a studio and a four-person household with an income range of between $126,686 and $196,845 would pay $3,580/month for a three-bedroom.
