Happy Thanksgiving From New York's #1 Remodeling Directory

Today we wish New York, New Jersey, Westchester, Long Island, Connecticut and Rockland a Happy Thanksgiving from cityhammer.com, New York's #1 Remodeling Directory.
To all of our members, visitors, advertisers and friends, we hope that the holiday is a joyous and restful one as we pull into the final stretch of 2008.
In December, look for "The Best of the cityhammer blog" as we highlight some of the best moments of this, our first year of posting about New York, remodeling, contractors, designers, trends and breaking news in the renovation industry.
Now, for you Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade fans, here's some advice: If you are looking for the full-blown parade experience, get to the west side of Central Park (between 77th and 81st Streets at Columbus) the night before to watch the inflating of the balloons.
For the more casual (sane) fan, you can try to get near the beginning at 77th Street and Central Park West, but get there early, way before the 9 am start time, if you expect to be anywhere near the front.
The parade will turn onto Broadway at Columbus circle, finally making a turn onto 34th Street past Macy's Herald Square and ending on 7th Avenue. Anywhere along this route would work, but try to avoid the area between 34th and 38th Streets as this is where the camera crews typically set up to capture the performances.
This is the 82nd year that Macy's has run the parade and we've not been disappointed yet. If you're going, dress warm and send us lots of pic's.
Happy Holidays and thanks for reading the cityhammer blog this year!
