Last night, for the fourth year in a row, Macy's held their 4th of July fireworks display over the Hudson River, a display that many New Yorkers—particularly residents of Brooklyn, Queens, and the east side of Manhattan—cannot see. Prior to this year's event, State Senator Daniel Squadron and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio announced their online petition to bring the fireworks back to the East River—something even Mayor Bloomberg favors, at least on alternating years.
So, let's take a look at what Macy's is giving most of New York. One tipster from Brooklyn sent us the above photo of her view, writing: "This is the view I was able to catch of the 'NYC' fireworks, from a 6th floor rooftop in Gowanus. What's the deal with the 'viewable only from Manhattan/West Side' Hudson River display?? Again! Now only filthy rich people and the Palisades are able to enjoy the 4th of July works from their viewpoints? WTF??!! Just sharing my indignation."
If you have documentation of your terrible viewpoint, please send it along, and together we'll show Macy's how their fireworks display looks to most of New York.
