TIL: Thanksgiving Parade

81st St and Central Park West, New York

I never noticed before, but to accommodate the Thanksgiving parade floats, all the streetlights are pulled out of the way on the parade route. Here we see the light being pulled back into place. First a guy in a cherry-picker lassos the light, then drops the ropes down to his partner on the ground. Then he loosens the bolts on the lamp post and the partner uses the rope to heave the lights back into position before the bolts are tightened again. Who knew?
