What the Macy*s Fireworks look like

7/4/2010 Bump:

Sneak Preview of Macy*s Fireworks Spectacular

For those wondering what the Macy’s Fireworks looks like from Hoboken – or if you don’t feel like watching them tonight – here’s where Hoboken411 watched them from last year – at Elysian Park.

Note that if you want to watch them from Hoboken, and want to be as close as possible – find the most northern point in town – such as near the Hudson Tea Building.

Either way – Happy Independence Day!

7/5/2009:

Stuff blew up

Mobs of patriotic onlookers (and freeloaders) enjoyed a rare site on the Hudson River… I was more concerned with how my pooch Oscar was handling the barrage of deafening mortars… but I managed to snap a few photos to demonstrate how the view looked from Elysian Park – and the semi-dud of a “Grand Finale…”

What’s the difference between an onlooker and a freeloader?

pretty good show. i watched the fireworks from stevens near CPA – great unobstructed view (except for some tree leaves here and there) of all 4 barges. once it was over, getting back home to jersey city was pretty easy. the only annoyance was the throngs of people walking in the middle of the street near 5th where i was parked. i mean, comeon people im already on the road.. usually if you see a car on the road you move to the sidewalk, you don’t continue walking in the street!

still, it only took like 2 minutes longer to get home. nothing major, and i didnt witness really any drunken debauchery. all in all a good time

Like Macy’s clothing, these fireworks were presentable and a good value, yet vaguely underwhelming.

I did not see the swarms I expected and getting home was a snap. The mobile food court of River Road…sorry Sinatra Drive…seemed unprofitably quiet.

While at Elysian Park I saw some guy walking around with a dog that was groomed to look like it had a lion’s mane. Just crazy, man.
