One of the most popular places to stay is close to Manhattan’s St. Patrick's Cathedral, which is passed each year by the New York St. Patrick's Day Parade. Famed for its Irish immigrants, New York holds some of the biggest St. Patrick's Day festivities outside of Ireland. The true scale of these collective events can only be experienced when travelling to New York for a city trip over St. Patrick’s Day. Staying near Fifth Avenue, you can watch clans of Irish descendants marching in the New York St. Patrick's Day Parade towards 86th Street. There are countless Irish pubs in New York, so a crawl will definitely provide innumerable opportunities to enjoy some traditional Irish fun and games. New York City will be virtually awash with green – hats, faces, cloths, fountains, bagels, and even the Empire State Building.
