Subject: July 4 Celebrations in Dumbo?
I was wondering if you would be so kind as to put up a post on places to watch the fireworks on Friday in and around DUMBO (including how early you need to stake your claim to get a spot, any food/drink restrictions in the parks, how crowded it gets, etc.)
Fireworks start at approximately 9pm. The Brooklyn Bridge Park, Fulton Ferry Landing, and Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park are perfect locations to view the East River fireworks. Since traffic will be busy, take the subway to the parks if possible since parking will be very limited. As was last year, the following streets will be closed from 8 pm to 10:30 pm:
- Hicks Street between Atlantic Avenue and Old Fulton Street.
- Furman Street between Old Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue.
- Old Fulton between Prospect Street and Furman Street.
- Columbia Heights between Montague Street and Old Fulton Street.
If you live in or have friends who live in buildings in Dumbo, their rooftops are also a great place to watch the fireworks.
If you would like to share photos of your July 4 celebrations or fireworks, email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or add them to the DumboNYC Flickr Photo pool. Go to Macys.com for full fireworks details.
