Although many locals leave the city to celebrate the holiday in the Hamptons or in upstate New York, the city is still a great place to enjoy Independence Day. The Macy’s Firework Display will see more than 10,000 fireworks let off from barges right in front of the Brooklyn Bridge. The entire display will be synchronised to music and this year the score will be classic cinema themes with a live performance from Jennifer Hudson.
Where to be: Venturing out into the New York Harbour allows you to get a close-up view of the Statue of Liberty while taking in the fireworks. This year, ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina will have a front-row seat for the pyrotechnic display. ONE°15 can host yachts up to 60 metres and boasts one of New York City’s best marina views for the show.
