What started as a dignified, after church promenade down Fifth Avenue in the 1850's, has become a total theatrical experience in which anyone who wants to can participate.
The city blocks off Fifth Avenue from 47th to 59th Street from 10 am to 4 pm on Easter Sunday and the area becomes a pedestrian mall filled with folks wearing amazing headgear, street performers, gawkers and tourists. It's quite a spectacle and a lot of fun.
If you are going to be in New York for Easter, you should definitely show up. It's a real experience and definitely a You Tube moment. Happy Easter everyone.
