On July 10, 2019 and July 10, 2015, New York honored the U.S. women's soccer team with a ticker tape parade down the "Canyon of Heroes," celebrating its World Cup triumph and paying tribute to the players' emergence as icons of women's rights.

The victorious women's team joins the ranks of Apollo astronauts, foreign monarchs, and baseball's New York Yankees in being honored with a parade and marker.

The New York tradition began in 1886, when people who worked in skyscrapers threw ticker tape - ribbons of white paper on which stock information was recorded in those days - onto a parade celebrating the dedication of the Statue of Liberty.

With stock information now computerized, ticker tape has been replaced with shredded office paper and confetti.
