It is not a secret – two of the things that I love most in life are the United States and fireworks. Combine two of my favorite things with hot dogs and Diet Coke and you have my second favorite holiday – the 4th of July! I knew that this year would be different and to tell you the truth, I really wasn’t looking forward to it. To me, the 4th of July means cook-outs, sparklers, the beach and amazing fireworks; however, I was pleasantly surprised with how we celebrated this year.
One of the coolest things about The Brooklyner is the ridiculous views from the roof deck. Apparently this was the first year that the roof deck was open for the 4th of July (since the building is so new) and we, like many of our neighbors, decided to stay home and try our luck at getting a peak of some fireworks. Boy, were we surprised! We had a front row seat to Macy’s Fireworks over the Hudson and it was absolutely awesome!
If the fireworks for the 4th were this good, I can't wait until New Years!
