9. Macy’s Thanksgiving Balloons Were Once on Display at the Park Slope Armory

Over the years, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade balloons have appeared inside the Park Slope Armory. In 1995, the New York Times reported that “Snoopy, the Pink Panther, Woody Woodpecker and other balloons from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be displayed in the Park Slope Armory, at 15th Street and Eighth Avenue, from May 4 to May 7. The $2.50 admission fee will benefit Prospect Park and local charities.”
