Go West! Fourth fireworks show set to rock Hudson River

For the first time in 11 years, Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks, the largest fireworks display in the nation, is returning to the Hudson River.

The fireworks will be launched from barges between roughly W. 14th Street and W. 34th Street. The show begins at 9:25 p.m.

New York City was offering 10,000 tickets for the general public for viewing on Piers 45 and 84, but they have all been claimed.

For those without pier tickets or access to a rooftop, a good viewing spot is the West Side Highway, which will be closed from Spring Street to W. 46th Street. Public-access points include Christopher and Washington Streets; W. 11th and Washington Streets; W. 12th and Washington Streets; W. 29th Street and 11th Avenue; and W. 40th Street and 11th Avenue.

ADA-accessible access points to the highway include Christopher and Washington Streets, and W. 41st Street and 11th Avenue.

Many side streets by the river on the West Side will also be closed to traffic.

There will be water stations available. Spectators can bring a clear, reusable water bottle to fill up.

Prohibited items include, in alphabetical order:

Duffel Bags
Glass Containers
Hover Cameras
Illegal Substances
Large Bags
Large/Hard-Sided Coolers
Large Packages
Lawn Chairs
Motorized Scooter or Vehicles
Picnic Blankets
