NEW YORK (WABC) -- Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Sunday night that New York City will host a ticker-tape parade in honor of the Super Bowl XLVI Champions New York Giants on Tuesday.
The New York Giants beat the New England Patriots 21-17 in Indianapolis.
The victory parade will begin at Battery Place and Washington Street at 11a.m. and continue northbound up the Canyon of Heroes to Worth Street.
The parade will be followed by a ceremony at City Hall Plaza, at which the mayor will present the New York Giants with Keys to the City.
"Big Blue gave us a game to remember, and on Tuesday we're going to give them a parade to remember," Bloomberg said.
While the sidewalks lining Tuesday's tickertape parade up the Canyon of Heroes along Broadway from the Battery to City Hall are open to all members of the public, there is limited space on City Hall Plaza for the ceremony with the Giants players and owners.
The city will conduct a public giveaway for 250 winners (500 tickets) to the ceremony in City Hall Plaza today from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. through NYC.gov and 311. People will also be able to access the entry form through the New York City Mayor's Office Twitter page. Tri-state area residents 18 years and over will have an opportunity to enter the giveaway by visiting NYC.gov or calling 311 and selecting the Ticket Giveaway menu option. There will not be an opportunity to enter the giveaway before 9 a.m., and it will end promptly at 11 a.m. Entrants may only enter once and will be asked to give their name, email address and phone number in order to enter. Winners will be notified beginning at 2 p.m. and will have to pick up their tickets at a location in Midtown by 8 p.m. Monday.
The city will also set up three large screens around City Hall for members of the public to watch the ceremony.
All guests will have to go through security on the east side of City Hall only, and all bags will be examined.
Access to City Hall Plaza for the ceremony will begin early, and attendees will likely not have an opportunity to attend preceding parade.
There have been reports in the past of fraudulent offers for tickets to the parade, including access to floats, and to the ceremony.
There are no tickets or passes to any portion of the parade, and any such offers are fake.
Ceremony tickets are not for resale.
If you are aware of any tickets or passes being sold, please call 311.
Anticipate significant street closures, limited parking and public transportation diversions in Lower Manhattan.
