Most New York sports teams and their fans only shut down traffic for their fancy ticker-tape parades. We are not most New York sports teams, and we are DEFINITELY not most New York sports fans. We’ll shut down traffic for a regular season game in May. Why? Because we can.
Join the ESC, VASC and GSU for a memorable evening on the streets of New York this Saturday. That’s right, ON the streets of New York, as the South Ward, with the help of our friends at The Football Factory at Legends, will shut down traffic on 33rd Street in Manhattan for a march-in before our game against LA Galaxy.
Rock your RBNY gear, wear your scarves, bring that skeptical friend who always wondered what the ESC and the South Ward were all about. We’ll be dancing in the shadow of the Empire State Building, so the more the merrier!
Here are the details:
WHEN: 5pm we gather, 5:30 we march.
WHERE: Greeley Square Park. The park is between 32nd and 33rd Streets, and right where Broadway and Avenue of the Americas intersect. Take the PATH train to the 33rd St. stop, and you’re right there.
Once we’re all amassed, we’ll make the walk up 33rd St. and into Legends. Everyone over 21 will be allowed downstairs into The Football Factory, the under-21′s will have to stay on the main floor at Legends. As a bonus to the over-21′s, you’ll be given a wristband so you can stay and watch the Floyd Mayweather vs. Miguel Cotto fight later that night free of charge. That’s a $20 value, so all the more reason to come out. Plus we’ll have the usual food-and-drink specials for all our road games at Legends.
So clear your schedule, and come out for an epic day in New York City!
