We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

It’s been a long day for you so we think it’s time to take a break. Before you head out for that break, take a few minutes to check out this 50-cm centimeter color WorldView-2 image collected of the 89th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 26, 2015 in New York City. The weather over NYC on the 26th was less than ideal for imagery as the skies were partly cloudy; and given that it is close to winter, the sun was low and so the shadows are deeper than we would like. All that said, this is still one cool image of the parade taken by Columbus Circle where the route turns to the east before heading south on 6th Avenue for its final stretch. In the WorldView-2 image, you can see hordes of parade watchers as well as three floats. Did we peak your interest about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? If so, check out these fun facts about the parade!

Have a great rest of your workday! J
