July 4th Fireworks from Roosevelt Island

Macy's July 4th FireworksWe had the best view ever of the Macy's July 4th Fireworks from Roosevelt Island this year. The entire south end of Roosevelt Island is converted into an outdoor theater every July 4th, with rows and rows of chairs facing the fireworks display. On Roosevelt Island, everybody gets a seat, which beats squatting and standing on the pavement on the FDR Drive.

There was also food from Brother Jimmy's, a live band, and entertainment for the kids. The weather was perfect and the fireworks were spectacular. The only drawback was having to wait more than an hour in line to get onto an F train and off of Roosevelt Island.

The view was worth the wait! Check out my photo gallery of the Macy's July 4th Fireworks from Roosevelt Island.
