Best Answer

New York

Some historical details with link.

After Irish immigrants found their way to America, the Colonies celebrated St Patrick's Day for the first time in Boston, in 1737.

In New York City, the earliest celebration was held in 1756 at the Crown and Thistle Tavern, according to the U.S. Department of International Information programs.

Parades were not initially included in the activities.

The first St. Patrick's Day parade was born in Manhattan, on March 17, 1762, when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City streets accompanied by the bold familiar command of highland Bagpipes, ancient instruments capable of emitting a haunting shrill wail exploited by early Celtic soldiers to intimidate the enemy.
