I’m so glad the fireworks will be on our side this year!!!! I think that it should be closer to the Statue of Liberty anyways.
I wonder if there are any special plans for Liberty State Park.

The spectacular Macy’s July 4th fireworks display is moving across town in 2009. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the exploration of the Hudson River by Henry Hudson, Macy’s will stage their annual show stopping pyrotechnics over the Hudson River instead of the East River this year.

The 2009 Macy’s fireworks show will feature more than 40,000 shells exploding at a rate of more than 1,500 per minute. The 26-minute display will be set off from six barges positioned between 24th and 50th Streets on the Hudson River.
The fireworks display will be synchronized to a score of patriotic standards, classic river-themed works, and original music. The legendary New York Pops will perform the musical score under the direction of Steve Reineke.
