St. Patrick's Day

Today, Manhattan is a sea of green as thousands of people came out for the 251st annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on Fifth Avenue. The gorgeous weather and today being a Saturday contributed to the huge turnout. This year's grand marshal was Francis X. Comerford, chief revenue officer and president of commercial operations for the NBC Owned Television Stations. He grew up in Brooklyn—and attended Xavier High School—but he traces his Irish lineage back to Ireland's County Kilkenny.
