For this mother of all pyrotechnic displays, Macy's will explode more than 40,000 fireworks choreographed to a 25-minute patriotic score. Stake out a nice spot near the Brooklyn Bridge, and bring your own picnic basket with beverages to toast our country's birthday.
Best viewing location: Broad Street and/or Old Slip at Water Street, Brooklyn Bridge entry from St. James Place (Pearl Street) & Wagner Place, Montgomery & South Streets: From the north (viewing along the FDR between Manhattan Bridge and Montgomery Street, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn Bridge Promenade
RECOMMENDED: All 4th of July coverage

Last year I spent my fourth of July in army barracks, this year I plan to turn it up and watch the fireworks explode the NYC sky, proud to be an American soldier today!!!!
The locations in the article *ARE WRONG*. This year, the fireworks are on the *EAST RIVER*, not the hudson. If you go to 12th avenue, you will see a big fat nothing. http://social.macys.com/fireworks/#/wheretowatch
Why does Time Out say Location Unknown?! The Location was announced over 1 Year Ago, http://social.macys.com/fireworks Very poor information!
