Independence Day in NYC
On July 4, the United States fills with flags, barbecues and fireworks to celebrate its most patriotic day: Independence Day.
Americans commemorate the passing of the Declaration of Independence by Congress on July 4, 1776, with a national holiday held outdoors.
On Independence Day, many New Yorkers leave the city for Long Island or Fire Island to barbecue with their families. The trains to the beaches are usually full but nobody is in a hurry that day.
The 4th of July is one of the few days of the year that many stores close. Most clothing stores are not open, and neither are banks, post offices or schools. The museums and for example Top of the Rock and One World Observatory are open. Fireworks are part of a traditional celebration of the United States on July 4, when the Independence Day of that country is celebrated.
The tradition of making a light show with fireworks came to the United States from the 18th century, in a celebration of 1777, a year after independence was declared. That year, a celebration in Philadelphia included 13 fireworks in the Commons honoring the 13 colonies.
When the 19th century ended, Italian migrants, settling in the United States, brought fireworks to the country. The United States now consumes fireworks in massive quantities in honor of the holiday, importing more than 428 million pounds of consumer and display brand fireworks in 2021, according to the American Pyrotechnics Association.
These are some of the fireworks shows scheduled for today, July 4.
Following the “Salute to America” event at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, the fireworks display began.
For this significant date for all Americans, the city of Los Angeles has several shows on Independence Day. There will be events from 10 am to night, ending with the light show in the sky. In New York, Macy’s annual fireworks show will be on July 4 at 9:25 p.m.
This year there will be observation areas along the East River between 23rd and 41st streets, east of the city, along the FDR Drive in Manhattan. In Queens there will be viewing areas at Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City. And in Brooklyn there will be official viewing areas at Transmitter State Park in Greenpoint, and at Bushwick Inlet Park and Marsha P. Johnson State Park in Williamsburg.
In any case, for those who are looking to live this day in a very special way, we always recommend boat trips as they allow you to see the famous Macy’s fireworks over New York from an unbeatable point of view.
