On the 4th of July, I was at a friend's roof top cook-out in the West Village (West 14th & 7th to be exact), waiting for the Macy's fireworks show to begin over the Hudson.
This was going to be my 4th time seeing the Macy's fireworks. I had always braved the crowds along the FDR Drive, by the East River, or along Chelsea Piers and the West Side Highway, overlooking the Hudson River.
This year I planned to do something low key and luckily I had the chance to view the show from the comfort of a roof top with snacks, drinks and good friends!
So here's how the night went...
The sky turned a bright orange
Night was falling
I had a cupcake
My friends got out a blanket
There were reds!
And then I stopped taking pics just in time to actually SEE the finale, out from behind the camera lens...
