Brooklyn is the perfect place to catch the nation’s largest display — the 32nd annual “Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks” over the East River. This year, the show will feature a number of fireworks that float on the water.

“It’s a really fun event for the family,” said Macy’s spokesman Orlando Veras. “It caps off the day with a bang, or actually, several thousand bangs.”

The half-hour show, starting at 9:25 pm, will launch over 35,000 fireworks from two locations, on the East River between 10th and 24th streets, and at South Street Seaport. Anywhere along Brooklyn’s shores with a good view of the East River between Houston and 42nd streets — ideally, Williamsburg or Greenpoint — will be a great spot to watch fireworks.

For the South Street Seaport show, Macy’s recommends watching from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park, or Furman Street between Atlantic Avenue and Cadman Plaza West.

For information about viewing locations, call the Macy’s fireworks hotline at (212) 494-4495.
