Giants fans came out in droves to lower Manhattan on Tuesday to celebrate the team's win in Super Bowl XLVI.
The parade, where Giants players rode floats and quarterback Eli Manning held up the Vince Lombardi Trophy, started at 11 a.m. on Broadway at Battery Park and worked its way up to Worth Street.
But the real revelry was on the side streets, east and west of Broadway, where die-hard fans—decked out in Giants apparel, waving flags, wearing foam hands and face painting—continuously shouted “Blue,” in a long, slow cadence that sounded like a whale’s song.
They also shouted, “Let’s go Giants, let’s go!” “G-Men, baby!” and even “Patriots suck!”
Families with babies, 20-somethings cutting college classes and professionals all took a day off from their responsibilities to celebrate their team, their city and took ownership of the Giants Super Bowl victory on Sunday night as their own.
