ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTORS BTR Editorial

New Yorkers who wanted to take a sneak peak at the Macy’s Thanksgiving balloons did not miss the opportunity to see them inflate last night on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Thousands of people crowded the streets surrounding the American Museum of Natural History to witness Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Papa Smurf, and other beloved characters, become larger than life.
