The Easter Bonnet Parade is simply joyful. Yes there are crowds, but since it isn't a "parade" as you think of it - it is more of a meander around to see and be seen - the crowds aren't annoying. From elegant to whimsical from professionally crafted to craftily created: all the bonnets are magic. Keep your politics at home.... More

A NYC Easter tradition since the 1880s. The thick of it is in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center and up to 57th Street where it ends by Tiffany. A mix & match with new outfits and extravagant hats. Anyone can participate. Children, adults give way to their creativity and imagination in producing these beautiful and elaborated hats. The...

First time I have been in the City for the Easter Parade. Loved it, so many people, children, animals all decked out in hats and costumes. Everyone was having a great time.

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this FREE event. There were literally thousands of people on 5th Avenue (closed to traffic) showing their Easter Bonnets. Some professionally made, others very much handmade. All were willing to be involved in photographs and there atmosphere was full of fun. DEFINITELY recommend this if you are in New York over the...

It's not Irving Berlin's Easter Parade anymore. But, the characters and wild bonnets make it fun to be there.

We attended Easter Service at St.Patricks Cathedral and afterwards thoroughly enjoyed the "Easter Parade" on fifth avenue. This should be a must on any visitors list.

They close off Fifth Avenue for a dozen blocks and people stroll and gather and strut their hats, costumes, and more.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
