MAYOR BLOOMBERG AND DOWNTOWN ALLIANCE ADD NEW YORK GIANTS TO THE CANYON OF HEROES

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Alliance for Downtown New York President Elizabeth Berger and New York Giants Defensive End Justin Tuck today unveiled a permanent historic marker along the Canyon of Heroes in honor of the New York Giants historic victory in Super Bowl XLII. The marker, located on Broadway between Park Place and Barclay Street, joins the more than 200 plaques in Lower Manhattan commemorating ticker-tape parades which have celebrated legendary individuals and sports teams for more than 100 years. It is the first time in history that the New York Giants will be honored with a plaque in the Canyon of Heroes, located along Broadway from Battery Park to City Hall.

"The Giants Super Bowl XLII victory was a great day in New York City history and now all the memories of that game and the tickertape parade will be etched into the streets of our city," said Mayor Bloomberg. "As Lower Manhattan continues to grow into a thriving community, the Canyon of Heroes reminds us of our City's history. Now, thanks to the Downtown Alliance, the New York Giants will have a permanent place, not only in the record books, but also here in the Canyon of Heroes." See, NYC.GOV
