Congratulations to the U.S Women’s National Team on their incredible World Cup win! What an inspiring journey it has been to watch; NYC is celebrating with a once in a lifetime ticker tape parade. Residents and visitors are invited to share their support for this amazing sports team in Lower Manhattan.
