New York fireworks-195Happy 4th of July! I saw the Macy’s fireworks show in New York for the first time, and it was worth the 3 hour wait despite the heat and humidity. From my vantage point at 29th Street and 12th Avenue, I could see fireworks from 4 barges on the Hudson and could hear loud echoes from multiple directions, which made the noise almost overwhelming at some points. The crowd seemed to like the heart and smiley face shaped fireworks, but I loved these abstract ones.
