four leaf clover

Don’t be caught without a piece of green linen when another holiday parade comes marching and bagpiping down those long Manhattan boulevards. If you haven’t brought a change of clothes, any four-leaf clover will do. It’s the top of the morning in New York City and we’re already thirsty on this Saint Patrick’s Day. Rowdy lots of college kids can be seen staggering between Irish pubs, but you’re looking for something a little more traditional.


The official parade begins, naturally enough, on March 17th. Around 11 o’clock in the morning on 44th Street, you’ll find the lucky Irish walking in step. First it heads up Fifth Avenue, moving past Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in its famous spot on 50th Street and coming to a halt at the upper 79th Street. Follow this merry band all the way and you’ll be pleased to arrive at the the American Irish Historical Society, on East 80th Street.
