NYC Celebrates U.S. Women's Soccer Team

Thousands of fans filled the streets of Lower Manhattan July 10, cheering and tossing confetti to celebrate the U.S. women's victorious soccer team. Its members are the first female athletes to receive the honor of the city's so-called ticker-tape parade in more than 50 years. The 23-member team marched up Wall Street's Canyon of Heroes, spanning the stretch of Broadway between Battery Park and City Hall, smiling and waving to the roaring crowds. The call for the parade came from Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer - less than 24 hours after its remarkable victory and Mayor Bill De Blasio quickly put it in motion.
