Fourth of July is finally here and New York City is known for their Macy’s Fireworks. The 41st annual celebration of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks is launching their light show from five barges stationed along the East River between East 24th and 41st streets.  It is the largest Independence Day fireworks display in the nation.
