St. Patrick’s Day, New York
Springtime in New York is about to begin, so the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be in full swing across the 5 boroughs and a sea of people in green will be found on Fifth Avenue for the most festive parade of the year. But Irish history in New York goes back further than a parade and a few pints. Take a trip to the Big Apple and celebrate the culture and traditions that the Irish people bring to this cultural melting pot we know as New York.
In the United States, New York is the city with the largest number of Irish residents. In several waves of immigration, millions of Irish came to New York, Boston, and other large metropolises on the east coast in order to have a better life in the first phases. After the boom in the Irish industry, New York was a popular destination for second homes.
