Spots With A Great View Of The 4th Of July Fireworks

Spending 4th of July in one of America’s most iconic cities is bound to be amazing no matter how you decide to celebrate—NYC never disappoints. And where a BBQ, a picnic, or a party are all perfectly pleasant ways to commemorate America’s birthday, the ultimate celebration has to be watching Macy’s annual fireworks display. Since this year the fireworks will take place over the East River, we suggest you head somewhere near the water in Midtown, the East Village, Long Island City, Greenpoint, or Williamsburg. Make sure that wherever you go that you set up a couple of hours before the 9:25 p.m. start time because it is sure to be crowded!
