It wouldn’t be the Fourth of July in New York City without the Annual Macy’s Fireworks, now in its 37th year.
The iconic display will take place over the Hudson River, so the optimal viewing spots are going to be on 12th Avenue between 23rd and 42nd streets, but anywhere with a decent view of the Hudson will work.
If you plan on heading to where the action is, aim to be there by 5 p.m. to snag a good spot.
For this mother of all pyrotechnic displays, Macy’s will explode more than 40,000 fireworks choreographed to a 25-minute patriotic score.
Pop-music fans, take note: this year’s show was curated by Usher and features performances by Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Mariah Carey and Selena Gomez.
Admission price: Free
