Our table will be between Albany Ave and Troy Ave on the North Side of Eastern Parkway (To see it on a map search an address like “915 Eastern Parkway”). That’s the side with the odd number buildings and the subway platform going toward Manhattan.
Take 2, 3, 4, 5 to Utica Ave and exit on the stairs closest to that platform so you don’t have to cross the parkway (impossible from 12 noon on). Walk 2 blocks in direction that the parade moves (Utica is the beginning). You pass Schenectady and then Troy. [Actually if you are able to get off the train at Kingston Avenue you only walk one block to Albany Ave, walking against the parade direction.]
