LOWER MANHATTAN - In a crowd of about one million die-hard New York Giants fans who gathered in Lower Manhattan for the parade this morning, there were plenty of true-blue believers from Long Island who cheered on their champions.

Fans traveled from across the Island to root for the G-Men, including the man of the hour, MVP Eli Manning, as they made their triumphant way down the Canyon of Heroes.

"This is our first parade, and we're loving every minute of it," says Charlene Lacasia, of Rocky Point. "This is so much fun."

Ticker-tape and sheets of white paper rained from the windows of the surrounding buildings, which were bristling with office workers anxious to get a glimpse of the festivities below.

"It's really good to see the city come together like this and have a big celebration," says Scott Sulzer, of Riverhead.To watch the full video of the Giants victory parade, the City Hall ceremony and the festivities at MetLife Stadium, go to channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select the 'Giants Celebration' tab.
