Noticed the date and name markers as I was on Broadway heading south. It turns out this is called the Canyon of Heroes! A marker is placed for those who are honored with a ticker-tape parade. The markers can easily be overlooked because they are in the ground, along the sidewalk, where there is plenty of traffic. But don't miss these historic markers.
Apparently there are more than 200 of the markers and it is fun to see who was honored and when. Many of the names will be familiar to anyone. And if you don't know someone it gives you a chance to learn who was honored.
The markers begin at the Financial District and head towards the City Hall, south. See how many you can spot.
Of course, this is a free activity and just one of the many special things in New York City.

Each time there has been a ticker tape parade they have put a plaque on the ground commemorating it again in what they call the canyon of heroes. It is neat to see as you are walking to whatever destination you are going to. Also, it is free to see which is unique for NYC. If in this area it is worth a quick read for sure.

Along Broadway, there are granite markers that are installed in the sidewalks between City Hall and Battery Place (start at City Hall for the most recent events). The markers commemorate the honorees of ticker-tape parades: 1994 New York Rangers, Pope John Paul II, Nelson Mandela, New York Yankees (several times), New York Giants (couple times), New York Mets (several times), dedication of the Statue of Liberty, etc. They are in chronological order. What nobody tells you is that the markers move from one side of the street to the other without notice. If you cross the street and there are no markers, just cross over to the other side and you will find them, they are easy to spot. With all of the construction going on in the area, some are partially covered right now.
Here is a list of the parades: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ticker-tape_parades_in_New_York_City
