New York City Fireworks | West Side Highway

New York City closed down its West Side Highway for spectators to take in the fireworks shot over the Hudson River in honor of the 400th anniversary of its discovery.  They had 4 or 5 barges shooting fireworks simultaneously up the river…quite a spectacle! There were 10s of thousands of people along the highway (a guesstimate)…and the city did an excellent job keeping it orderly and enjoyable for all.  Will post a gallery to my FLICKR soon.  Tomorrow afternoon’s post will feature fireworks from Portsmouth as taken from South Mill Pond.

July 4th | New York City

In New York City for the weekend and tonight’s fireworks!  Happy birthday America! (And happy 400th birthday to the discovery of the Hudson River!)  We’ll be watching from that little strip of highway at the bottom of the frame…they’re closing it down for the night, should be quite a scene.

New York City | Guest City

Traveled this weekend to New York and had the chance to stop by the Hudson River in West New York, New Jersey.  The Empire State Building was sporting red white and blue in honor of all our veterans and fallen soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.  The city skyline was gorgeous and a thunderstorm was rolling in, but I couldn’t capture any lightning (sadly).  You’ll have to see this one full size for a better view, here:  FLICKR.
