Hi there! What are you doing on the holiday? I’m double excited this year for the 4th of July, because besides of the fun holiday, Brazil is playing a game, so I can’t wait to watch it. It’s funny that I don’t care about soccer until World Cup, haha. I just love those festivities. Not sure where we will be watching the game yet, but we know where will be watching the fireworks. I’ll try to post pics later of the game + fireworks.
Now, if you’re in NYC you cannot miss the fireworks. This year the Macy’s show will be on the East River and starts at 9pm. As far as I heard, fireworks will be launched from the Brooklyn Bridge. I cannot wait to see that! The best places to watch for free are Brooklyn Bridge Park, South Street Seaport, Brooklyn Heights Promenade, the east side of Lower Manhattan (or a friend’s deck, if you know someone that has an awesome view.)
Another fun option, is to do a cruise and watch the show from the boat:
