NYC – July 4th Fourth Events, 2017 Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular – New York City 2018-02-03T19:56:43+00:00

Macy’s 41st Annual Fireworks Information

Taking place on Tuesday, July 4, 2017

The Fireworks generally take place at approximately 9:25 pm
and will be on the East River.

Live Television Coverage on NBC will be broadcast beginning at 8:00 pm
It’s best to show up at your chosen viewing location ahead of time.

This will be Macy’s 41st Anniversary. According to their site, unlike previous recent years, five barges will NOT be divided up between the midtown and farther downtown locales along the East River. It appears instead that all five barges will be situated between the streets around the mid 20s to the upper 30s.

Of course as we’ve mentioned in the past we’ve been let down in as far as the information was concerned. Sometimes they’d state a particular locale and it ends up being farther away, OR, they’d mention how there would be a specific number of barges at a location and the resulting number(s) end up being different. So please consider reaffirming the details at their site and taking even their own information with a slight toss of the proverbial grain of salt.

According to the official site the fireworks can be seen from any spot with an unobstructed view of the skies above the East River along the midtown east side of Manhattan and Long Island City, Queens.
