NY Times Hudson fireworks article
In honor of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson first making his way up the river now named for him, NYC is moving its 4th of July fireworks show from the East River (where they've been held since 1983) to the Hudson, on the west side of the island. The Hudson separates Manhattan from where I live, Weehawken, which will be THE PERFECT SPOT for viewing! They're going to set up 6 barges in the river, between 24th and 50th Streets. I live within a minute's walk from the Weehawken side of the river, which lies right across from around 30th to 45th Streets!
In the midst of all of the murky, crappy feelings for the past month or more... something literally dazzling and special (and guaranteed) to look forward to! :)
