Macy’s July 4th Fireworks 2012
Location for 2012 Macy’s July 4th Fireworks still unconfirmed
This in turn, got a lot of people in New York City pissed off – especially those living in other boroughs on the eastern side of Manhattan.
Do you care what river the Macy’s Fireworks are on?
Frankly – I find this “debate” that’s happening between “East Side” and the “West Side” of Manhattan in regards to where the fireworks will and should be displayed quite annoying.
People these days act so ENTITLED – as if they have any say in where Macy’s decides launch the fireworks that THEY pay for along with their sponsors.
This is a FREE event, and whether or not you can see it from the comfort of your own neighborhood – really shouldn’t concern anyone at all. If you love fireworks so much, you should be happy it’s just a short ride across town. To demand, let alone whine and complain that “it’s not where it used to be,” or “This is for New York, not New Jersey,” proves that our society has just collectively gone down hill.
Anyway, Macy’s rep Orlando Veras said that the original graphic was an “editing error” and they have yet to confirm the locations for July 4, 2012. They expect that information to be released sometime in the spring. They’ve corrected their graphic since – removing the Hudson River reference.
Do you really care where Macy’s decides to provide this free entertainment?
