This yr. we got the best seat in the house for the Macy's Fireworks. We live 5 min. away from The Piers in Hoboken NJ, and this year the Fireworks were done right in the middle of the Hudson River. The view from my In-Laws backyard was AMAZING! Here's a picture of NYC from our backyard. another one.. and another one...just 1 of the 6 Macy's boats, that were lined up along the Hudson River for the show that evening. Family & Friends gathered for a 4th of July BBQ =) Check it out... afterwards, there was so much smoke left in the air I hope we get the same view next yr :^.
