The annual march of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus elephants from Queens, through the Midtown Tunnel, and westward towards Madison Square Garden is set for 12:01AM on Tuesday, March 21 (that means it's 2 minutes after 11:59PM on Monday night - Gothamist is just spelling it out because we get confused about those thigns). The circus starts an almost four week stand at the Garden on Thursday, March 23, and tickets are on-sale now.

Now, the Manhattan route for the elephants is pretty clearly - across 34th Street - but a reader wonders about the Queens route, as they didn't make their way past the corner of 21st Street and Jackson Avenue as they have in previous years. While Gothamist does have a call into the circus' PR people, does anyone know about where the pachyderms will parade?
