Where to watch Macy's Fourth of July fireworks 2015

Independence Day is Saturday and Macy’s annual fireworks extravaganza remains on the East River for 2015. This year’s 25-minute-long display, which should start around 9 PM, will set off more than 50,000 pyrotechnic shells from the Brooklyn Bridge and barges in the water below and further up the river. Anywhere with an unobstructed view of the sky is a good place to watch — maybe a friend’s roof? — but there are designated public viewing sections on the elevated portions of FDR Drive with the following entry points:

FROM HOUSTON TO MIDTOWN:
HOUSTON STREET
23RD STREET
34TH STREET
42ND STREET

FROM LOWER MANHATTAN:
BROAD STREET GROUND LEVEL
OLD SLIP UPPER LEVEL
PEARL & FRANKFORT

ADA / SPECIAL NEEDS VIEWING AREA:
MANHATTAN: FDR DRIVE SOUTHBOUND LANE AT 16TH STREET & AVENUE C OR 34TH STREET (TOP OF RAMP) AND VIETNAM MEMORIAL PARK

BROOKLYN: BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK AT FURMAN STREET AND OLD FULTON STREET, NEAR PIER #1

QUEENS: CENTER BLVD FROM 48TH AVENUE TO 49TH AVENUE

You can also watch the fireworks live on NBC, as part of a concert event titled “Brave” that features performances by Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida, Brad Paisley and more.

There are also fireworks at Coney Island.
