Soo… just found out the Annual Macy’s Fireworks display will be set off the Hudson River, not off the East river (the usual locale, not very far from my apt).

Not sure why Macy’s decided to switch, but it pleases me to know that when I return to my apt after a friends 4th bash, I will not be hit in the face with the stench of urine, beer & sweaty peeps, many of whom, bc of the lack of McD’s bathrooms in the area, end up using the midtown streets as a toilet. Yum!

On those years when July 4th fell on a weekday, I would mute my T.V. (which was tuned in to NBC’s view of the fireworks show) just so that I could hear the fireworks go off simultaneously through my window. The only way I could actually see them from my apt, was if I squeezed myself between my bathroom wall & the toilet while contorting my body to the left – doing this so I would be able to look through the upper corner of my bathroom window. Not cool or fun.

In any case, if anyone is interested in getting a bird’s eye view of this year’s firework display, one suggestion is the fab celebration at the Hudson Terrace – one of my fav spots:

Have a wonderful & safe 4th of July dahlings!!
