The Women’s March after President Trump’s inauguration last year drew enormous crowds across the country and around the world, and it’s back this weekend. On Saturday, a rally will be held at Central Park West between 61st and 62nd Streets and then a march will head East and South. The main entrance to the rally will be at 72nd and Central Park West.

There’s more info here, and a brief description below:

“The main entrance point will be between at 72nd & Central Park West. The rally (starting at 11:30EST) will be at Central Park West & 61st/62nd street. The full block in front of the stage (61st to 62nd on Central Park West) will be reserved for those with disabilities. The march (starting around 12:30EST) will go past Columbus Circle, East on 59th Street, and South on 6th Avenue with exits at 45th/44th/43rd streets. We will have many after march activities (indoors) for you to choose from.”

People have also been knitting “pussy hats” at Knitty City in preparation.
