Below are a few simple suggestions.

Twelfth  Avenue and the West Side Highway.  Beginning at 6 p.m., Twelfth Avenue and the northbound lanes of the West Side Highway from 23rd to 59th Streets will turn into a giant block party for the nation’s birthday bash. Access points will be at the following streets: 24th, 26th to 30th, 34th, 40th to 44th, 47th to 52nd, and 54th to 57th.

Hudson River Park at Pier 54 and Pier 84.  These piers jut out into the Hudson River and promise phenomenal views. Pier 54, located on West Street and 13th Street, will have limited access from 14th Street, according to Macy’s website. The Pier 84 dock is located between West 44th and West 43rd streets in Midtown West. Limited access will be available at 44th Street.

Harlem Staycation: where to see the fireworks?

By HarlemGal for HarlemCondoLife
For all of us who are staycationing in Harlem this coming holiday weekend and not sure of where all the firework displays are scheduled, here is a guide. The closest viewing for Harlemites is the Hudson River, which will take place July 4th beginning a little after 9 PM. Hopefully, the weather will be cooperating this year so that we can see the fireworks display from places like West Harlem Piers or Riverbank Park. Whatever the case maybe, HCL hopes everyone has a fun weekend! On behalf of HarlemCondoLife.com, I would like to wish everyone a very happy, healthy, and safe Fourth of July!!!
