물방울갯수 10
로어 맨하탄 브로드웨이 인도 위에 길쭉하게 이름이 새겨진 쇠가 박혀 있습니다. 옛날에 브로드웨이길에서 퍼레이드를 한 사람들의 이름이라고 하는데 조더  자세한 내용을 알고 싶습니다. 인터넷 검색해도 찾을수가 없는데 아시는 분께 부탁드립니다.

Ticker tape parades in broadway 로 검색하시면 됩니다.
세계 1차대전 참전용사들이 집으로 귀환할때, 온 민족 가족들은 눈물을 머믐고 항구에서 아버지를, 남편을 기다렸습니다. 참 대대적인 시가 환영이었습니다. 이를 모체로 ticker tape parade 큰규모의 시가행진이라고 등록되거나 여겨지면 도로에 모너먼트처럼 새겨집니다.


Canyon of Heroes


Visitors to lower Manhattan may notice some unusual granite markers embedded in the sidewalks along Broadway. Those granite markers looks like this:

November 13, 1951 ? Women in the Armed Services

The further you walk, the more markers you will see ? and they are located on both sides of the street. Each marker lists a date and a person or group of people. But why are they here? The answer is actually located above, on the street corner signs along this path. The stretch of Broadway from the tip of Manhattan, known as the Battery, to City Hall is known as the Canyon of Heroes.

But what qualifies someone to be included in the Canyon of Heroes, you might ask? All someone needs to do is be the guest of honor at one of New York City’s ticker tape parades. One of the earliest parades along this route was on October 28, 1886, celebrating the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, but ticker tape parades really got their start when American troops began returning home after World War I.

Here’s the granite marker for the start of the Canyon of Heroes. (As you can see from the edge of the photos, some of the sidewalk vendors end up blocking some markers.)

In all, there have been more than 200 ticker tape parades, and every one has been commemorated with a granite marker. Approximately 130 of those took place during a 20-year period between 1945 and 1965. During that time period, heads of state of many countries were honored with parades. It’s interesting to see some of the names of those heads of state today. Although they were known as allies of the United States, some of these heads of state had mixed records when it came to democratic government or human rights issues. The markers show a wide range of international leaders from all over the world.

Here are just a few of the markers for heads of state.
