In recognition of the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson arriving in New York Harbor, this year Macy’s moved their July 4th fireworks celebration from the East River to the Hudson River. Unfortunately, this meant that the fireworks celebration was a bit more difficult to see from my house. I originally thought about going to a party in New Jersey or visiting friends, but when today came I wasn’t feeling very well and decided to stay home.
I took a look at the fireworks from my roof anyway, and it turned out that the view wasn’t so bad. The weather was perfect, and the folks on the roof were able to see the top half of the fireworks through the Manhattan Bridge.
