I don’t know about you, but Ashley and I have an ongoing “New Yorker’s Bucket List” of sorts. There are certain things we feel every New Yorker must experience while living here, and watching the Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Display is definitely one of them. Sure, the lines are long, the view of the display can be less than ideal, and sitting on the scorching hot asphalt of the West Side Highway for a few hours before the fireworks start is not the most comfortable way to spend a holiday. But sharing the same experience with about half a million fellow New Yorkers was a pretty exciting thing to be a part of. And apparently the Macy’s Show is one of the largest in the world, with something like 40,000 shells exploding at 1,500 per minute! It looked great!
I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July! And if your view of the fireworks was better than ours was at 55th st. and West Side Highway, send us a picture. Maybe we’ll try for a different spot next year!
