FDNY Pipes Step Off In ‘Best Parade Ever’

The Pipe Band from the New York City Fire Department steps off on Newport Avenue last Saturday for what many are calling “The best Rockaway St. Patrick’s Day Parade” in the long history of the annual event. For the 30th annual parade, the skies were clear and the temperature hovered at 50 degrees as hundreds of marchers and thousands of spectators geared up for the 1 p.m. start. As they say, “Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.” For more pictures of the breakfast and the parade, see pages 43-45.
