We're thinking of coming up to New York for Thanksgiving 2013. We would like to see the Parade and not freeze. (We're from South Florida) Many years ago I went to the parade and had breakfast at one of the hotels and was allowed to stay and watch from their windows and balcony. I don't remember which hotel. I'm looking to do something like that again. Any suggestions on where we can do this? Is there a hotel that I can stay at, without selling my kidney, on the route that I can see the parade from inside? we would like to be as close to the stage as possible since we would like to see all that the parade has to offer. Any other tips are greatly appreciated.
