In New York either in the streets are cleared for and they didn't blame that those adoring crowds I think he's really soaking at all taking its time saying goodbye he'll say. Goodbye to those crowds here. And will make his way to Central Park where I think we have a shot of the crowd that a week. Ago. We're seeing now on the right path for your screen just enormous crowd of tens of thousands of people. We've been waiting certainly weeks for this event and hours out there today in line to go through security to wait in place. As we've been talking about how they really just for a glimpse. Of hope for its. Looking now at aerials of Central Park where. As image and before those tens of thousands of people are eagerly awaiting the pope's arrival. Later on the perception. Before he makes his way to Madison Square Garden where is going to be delivering mass. Tonight. So all security hours of preparation weeks of anticipation months of planning the Pope will actually only be traveling twelve blocks. Through the length of the park. But that does not seem to matter to the tens of thousands of people who are eagerly awaiting. His arrival. Just for a chance to catch a quick glance. And hopefully the pictures here. Looks like the motorcade is begun to now move through Central Park. They don't break. There are great. And it doesn't look like the Pope is seen. Many of the crowd yet but I'm sure. As soon as he comes in contact event Bradley we'll see this Pope come alive. As we have this entire trip anytime he's able to interact. With some of those eagerly awaiting his arrival. It's all smiles and waves and happily. And away. Include nearly tears start to build with people at their first glimpse of hope Franklin.
