Best spots to watch this year's Macy's fireworks show
The Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks on Monday will celebrate the “Gift of Freedom” on the occasion of the Statue of Liberty’s 125th birthday.
The 25-minute show, scored to patriotic classics and contemporary hits, will feature more than 40,000 fireworks launched from six barges on the Hudson River.
Arrive early to scout a good viewing spot for the extravaganza, which begins at 9:20 p.m., or just flip to WNBC/4 and watch the action hosted by Nick Lachey, with performances by Beyonce and Brad Paisely.
Where to watch:
Gather are along 12th Avenue below 59th Street. Enter from the following 11th Avenue access points. Note: 12th Avenue will close to traffic at 6 p.m.
Where will you watch the fire works this weekend?
From my West Side apartment. Jealous? I'll be trucking over to the Hudson, just like Macy's wants. I'm leaving the city to see a nice small-town display. TV fireworks are better than no fireworks. I'll be hiding under the bed. With the dog.
