Our rocker from JYSK is super comfortable and affordable, considering how expensive they are.
Considering that both companies you provided links to are "service providers" not actual sponsors of the product you are proposing to buy , this strikes me as a very risky proposition. I suppose they have a bathroom for the employees, but probably not for customers on regular business days I did not inspect the location I would not buy this pig-in-a-poke.
I tried to do as much research as possible before posting here. I looked at street views, patron photos of the store, read countless articles talking about what was and wasn't the best "view" of the parade.
Once I saw the venue I emailed the company again to ask if they would be inviting so many people that the second floor views would be useless, and have not yet heard back. And yes, I do understand that the sidewalks are public space? One of the draws to something like this is having the second story, indoor views of the parade so that we'd be able to see both the floats and dancers, etc, on the ground as well as the balloons.
At least this is what I've read several times over. I happen to have been on a "corporate event" last night, on a boat going around lower Manhattan. Because the weather was poor and the boat had limited "outdoor" spaces anyway , I want to make another observation. I frequently point out that the 2nd and 3rd floor restaurants in TIme Warner Center have rather limited views, for all the promise they offer!
Going back to Toast Brasserie:. When there are seats I made up that number in a room that's 25' wide, and only a few windows, that means that only 20 or 30 seats can be said to have a window view.
Naturally, half the seats at a round table are actually facing away from a window! If people are crowding around the windows, those prime tables don't even have a "window view" anymore. And if you are not allowed to get up and go to the window, then the worst 60 seats in the room can only see fragments of balloons going by the window that they are 25' away from, in their seats.
There are a certain number of places like Gaonurri, which does not have a parade view, and is too high up for that anyway that have massive windows that serve almost everyone in the room. But they are very rare. I recommend that you locate a bathroom resource and find a place on the street, not so close to Macy's.
It doesn't sound legit. There are a number of restaurants along the parade route that offer breakfast and bathroom privileges but you still have to go outside to watch the parade. There's a few places that offer a view of the parade from inside but they are expensive. I know you are already realizing this isn't a good idea and I will add, IF there is a seat at the window on their 2nd floor you will neither see the dancers on the ground nor the balloons.
To see the balloons you will need to put your face almost onto the widow and turn your neck so that you are facing up or wait until they pass then see them in the distance, to see the dancers you will have to do the opposite, have your face on the window and look down.
The parade is not out on the distance, it will be too close to the building to have a good view of all the action. It's like standing next to the Empire Ste Building, you are too close to "see" it. If it it was your apt window you could open it and stick your head out, or walk along the windows and get a good view as each float , balloon , performer passes by but if you are stuck inside a deli with several other strangers you will all be crowded at the window with only your little tunnel view of Duane Reade across the street, the people on the opposite sidewalk and maybe some of the marchers on the opposite side of the street.
IMO there are two ways to experience the parade, either outside on the sunny side of the street with a thermos of hot cocoa or at home in PJs comfy and cozy in front of the TV.
This cracked me up. We were slightly above the balloon line. I looked out the window for a bit, but people were mostly just socializing and drinking mimosas and eating bagels.
If you want to experience the parade, a street view is imperative. Anything else is just a party All of your saved places can be found here in My Trips. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers.

It's 80 square feet jam-packed with love and prettiness. Her book collection has been gifted by many special people in our lives. I can't wait for bedtime stories. I hope she loves books as much as I do. This beautiful macrame garland was made by auntie Tatts. She makes the beautiful pieces.
Our rocker from JYSK is super comfortable and affordable, considering how expensive they are. This is the paint palette I used to paint all the pieces I created with Luna while she was growing in my tummy. When TJ asked me to marry him in Jasper Alberta, we were on a road trip and his parents found this beauty in a gift shop.
I also love this story of Ella Fitzgerald, one of my favorite artists. Auntie Natty buys the best books. This shelf is where everything wonderful lives. I won't bore you with every detail but I will say that my dad painted that seascape when he was 8, and my grandpa gave it to me.
So grateful my very talented sister is willing to always take pictures of this wonderful baby. Posted by mercedes Papalia at 3: If you are following our journey on Instagram, you already know that Luna is quite the little adventure baby. She came into the world 14 days past her due date a wild story for another day , and less than two weeks later TJ, Toby, Luna and I flew to BC to introduce her to TJ's family.
After a few restful weeks in BC we flew home and drove straight to Ottawa to share her with my family. She's clearly a traveler like her dad.
I notoriously don't carry a purse because I'm too disorganize and can never find anything. Also, I don't like the unbalanced feeling of holding something on my shoulder. This bag is a game changer for me. I choose the Madeline Camel and Gold because it's neutral and has the option to wear as a backpack. It really is a beautiful bag. You can catch me at any given time nerding-out about how much I love it to pretty much anyone who will listen or at least pretend to.
Her beauty is not just skin deep. The insert is what makes it so great for traveling. I am a terrible packer. I generally just toss things in a bag and hope for the best.
With Lily, I take the time to put all Luna's essentials in the pockets. There is tons of space and I rarely lose things. It feels as if this bag was created with such specificity and attention to detail. Everything about it suits me perfectly. If you're looking for a great diaper bag or just a well-organized purse I wholeheartedly recommend it. I may just have to get a few of them for myself. All of the opinions stated are my own.

Everything about Luna's room is personal. Each book and piece of decor was created or bought for her from someone who loves her. It's 80 .
