NEW YORK - The New York Giants are Super Bowl champions again, and the city will be honoring the team in the only way New York can, with a ticker-tape parade.

Earlier this afternoon, the champions returned from Indianapolis, and a sea of fans were there to greet them at Newark Airport. The team then made its way to a rally held at MetLife Stadium.

The parade will begin Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Battery Place and Washington Street in lower Manhattan, and will make its way on Broadway to Worth Street. The parade will then stop at City Hall Plaza at 1 p.m., where the team will be honored with a ceremony. The parade is open to the public, but the City Hall Plaza ceremony is for ticket holders only.

Nearly 1 million fans attended the Giants' championship parade in 2008, and with the unusually warm temperatures in the forecast, more are expected to turn out this year.

News 12 The Bronx will have live coverage of the parade starting tomorrow morning at 11 a.m.
