We know, that's some fine grammar.
It's true, in order to save money, the powers that be in NYC are cutting all parades back 25%. As to your first question, YES, even the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This is the ONE parade that should never be cut, it's iconic. Yes, a lot of other parades have been around a long time and are a really good time but the Thanksgiving Day parade? Cut back? Pshaw. This parade pays for itself in the sheer number of people lining the route and popping in and out of stores the entire time. There are a few other parades Johnny would hate to see scaled back, like the West Village Halloween parade but for all that is good and right with this world, NYC don't trim back the Macy's Parade.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled snowstorm.
