Fans cheer as they arrive in lower Manhattan for the start of the New York Giants Super Bowl parade in New York, Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012. Eli Manning and the New York Giants are Super Bowl champions again. Just as they did four years ago in Arizona, Tom Coughlin's Giants have defeated Bill Belichick's New England Patriots, this time 21-17 in Indianapolis for their fourth Lombardi Trophy.

NEW YORK — The New York Giants are celebrating their Super Bowl win with a ticker-tape parade in the Canyon of Heroes on Broadway, where the city has honored stars for almost a century.

The team started at the southern tip of Manhattan in Battery Park and slowly moved north to City Hall as thousands of fans dressed head-to-toe in Giants gear cheered. They are being showered with a mile of confetti along the procession.

The team will be presented with symbolic keys to the city in a ceremony at City Hall Plaza.

As a marching band played, floats adorned with sparkling blue and white Giants logos and carrying Giants players and their families and friends began to wind their way through the route.
