Thread: 7/4 fireworks at Brooklyn Promenade- has anyone experienced?

    Default 7/4 fireworks at Brooklyn Promenade- has anyone experienced?

    I've been living in NY/Brooklyn all my life but I've never seen the Macy's 4th of July fireworks in person- I'd really like to do that this year. I'm looking for a place that isn't as overcrowded as Manhattan (I figure there will be loads of tourists there) so I am thinking Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Has anyone here been there to see the 7/4 fireworks, and is it less crowded because it's in Brooklyn? What time should I arrive to be able to stand at the railing (closest to the fireworks)? I would love to take some great pictures as well. Any tips as well as suggestions for any other areas that isn't overcrowded where I will have a great view will be much appreciated!

    Yup, you picked a good place to watch. Fireworks start just after 9 PM and it will be crowded everywhere you go (but you should get there well before then, maybe an hour or two).
