Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks
July 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
It wouldn’t be Independence Day in New York City without the spectacular annual Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks (7/4). Exploding around the perimeter of Manhattan from barges in the rivers, these dazzling explosions of color and light give new meaning to “rockets red glare” and can be seen from just about anywhere with a view of the water. The real pro move, of course, is to head to the top of the Empire State Building, One World Trade, or Top of the Rock, where you can watch the booming blasts beneath you with all of the city spread out at your feet. Land of the free, indeed.
