With 12 marching bands, 26 floats, and musicians like Rita Ora, Diana Ross and John Legend performing, this year, the 92nd Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, was witnessed by nearly 3.5 million people in Manhattan. The parade began in the year 1924 and has been a holiday tradition ever since.
May Meng, a student of the Documentary Practice and Visual Journalism program, photographed this year’s parade.
Established in the year 1994, Union Square Grassman is owned and operated by Stewart Borowsky. This eco-friendly business sells wheatgrass, micro-greens and sprouts out of a refurbished school bus at the Union Square Greenmarket all year round. These images capture, visually, a day in the life of an urban agricultural entrepreneur.
