History with the Macy's Parade

The New York Daily News made their parade debut all the way back in 1977

, with float called the "Big Apple". It featured many NYC skyscrapers and landmarks, with a giant apple sitting in the center, representing the "Big Apple". It also had a bridge designed as a staircase to make room for people standing on the float. After 24 years of this float appearing in the parade, it finally retired in 2003.
