The East River Blasts Off for 2021’s July 4th

Once again the East River will host barges of fireworks for the Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Show. The show is scheduled to begin at 9:25 p.m.  In North Brooklyn the best views will be from: Domino Park, Bushwick Inlet Park, East River State Park, and Transmitter Park.  If you’d like to watch them from home the guidance is: any area with an unobstructed view of the sky above the East River around the Midtown mark.

Empire State Building will participate with their own pyrotechnics that will be launched from the 72nd, 86th, and 103rd floors.


The areas with the best ground views of the fireworks will be in a lock down of street closings and no parking zones.
