The patriotic spectacle lit up the sky over the Hudson River.

More than 40,000 firecrackers lit up the sky over the Hudson River for the 2013 Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks. This year Usher served as a "curator" for the spectacle, putting together the event's soundtrack, performing on the televised broadcast and collaborating on a firework effect that repesented a "beating heart." As has been the case in recent years, the best viewing spots were found along Manhattan's west side and points in Jersey (though a pier or boat would work just fine too). How was your view of the show?
