The view of the July 4 Macy’s Independence Day Fireworks celebration from Roosevelt Island was spectacular whether you were among the 1500 with tickets to the free event at FDR Four Freedoms Park,
on the East River waterfront promenade facing Queens just outside of the Southpoint Park entrance (thank you Eva Bosbach for the video),
at the Graduate Hotel Panoram Room rooftop cocktail bar paying $250 – $1700

or from a Manhattan Park building rooftop.
Before the Fireworks started people were picnicking and relaxing on the Cornell Tech campus hilltop, playing soccer and enjoying the treats from a variety of Food Trucks.
Great job tonight at Four Freedoms Park for the fireworks RIOC. Plenty of toilets. Cold water. Full ADA accessibility. Even mist. Job very well done. 👏👏👏👏@Rooseveltisland

After the fireworks were over, it took only about 40 minutes for the crowds to safely and quickly leave Roosevelt Island by Tram and Subway.
Excellent job by the folks at RIOC, NYPD and MTA organizing a safe and enjoyable Roosevelt Island July 4 Fireworks celebration.
