Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks
July 4, 2016 @ 9:25 pm - 10:00 pm
2016 marks the 40th anniversary of Macy’s annual Fourth of July Fireworks, a prime reason why New York is among America’s best places to celebrate Independence Day. This year, barges will line up on the East River from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Queensboro Bridge, giving new meaning to the rockets’ red glare, with bombs bursting in air from lower Manhattan to Central Park South. Looking for the best possible view of the action? We suggest leaving Manhattan behind and choosing a riverfront spot in Brooklyn to make the iconic skyline a dramatic backdrop.
