Brewer Calls for Ticker Tape Parade for Victorious U.S. Women’s Soccer Team

Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer today asked Mayor de Blasio to authorize a ticker tape parade along the Canyon of Heroes in Lower Manhattan to honor the U.S. Women’s National Team, who won the 2015 FIFA World Cup yesterday.

In a letter addressed to the mayor, Brewer wrote:

“New York has a strong history of honoring sports teams in the Canyon of Heroes, but has never held a parade to honor a women’s team. Our newest soccer champions present an opportunity for New York to recognize that heroes and role models come in all genders, and I hope you will work with me to make this parade a reality.”

Read the complete letter. A history of New York City ticker tape parade honorees may be viewed here.
