Fourth of July in NYC

New York, NY, United States
0 Kudos
There's nothing quite like celebrating the Fourth of July in New York City. There's so much to do and the Macy's Fireworks show is so notorious that a lot of the country sits to watch it on television. Going in person, you'll encounter a large crowd but its definitely worth it becuase viewing it on TV isn't anything like viewing in person. Its one of those things you have to do once.
Story Details


Roosevelt Island Tram Station (Manhattan Side)
Take a Ride on the Tram and visit Roosevelt ISland. There's a great farmers' market there on Saturdays.

Points of interest

Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge
Take a walk over this bridge for a great place to watch the fireworks.
Prospect Park
The crowd at the main fireworks event doesn't appeal to you? Try going to Prospect Park in Brooklyn is a great alternative.
East River Park
This park is nice to take a walk in. On the weekends, you can play a pick up game of soccer or basketball here.
Empire State Bldg
The empire state building isn't far from the fireworks show.
