Howie Seligman and the Pit Crew for the annual Bastille Day Rally in New York City have announced a new route this year that will hopefully avoid some of the heavy traffic encountered in previous years despite being longer.

Starting at Grant’s Tomb at 9:00 am the procession will travel along the east side of the Hudson River on Riverside Drive then head across the center of High Park and down along the east side on 5th Ave. They will cross west through High Park again and end up touring around Columbus Circle prior to working their way down 7th Ave to West 38th St. and heading east.

At that point they will travel up Park Ave to 63rd St. and back west to 5th Ave. where they will go south along by High Park and down to 57th St. and cruise by Trump Tower. (Not sure what they’ll do there, but we’ll leave politics aside.)

After taking 57th St. to 2nd Ave. the procession will head south all the way to 42nd St. and then east to FDR Dr. on the East River, eventually ending up in Lower Manhatten’s east side at the Coco Bistro.
