Fireworks at Grand Army Plaza

This is not in Dumbo, but thought it would be of interest: On Thursday, December 31, Brooklyn will usher in 2010 with a bang at the 28th annual New Year’s Eve fireworks spectacular at Grand Army Plaza (Google map). The free celebration, sponsored by the Brooklyn Borough President’s Office and held in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance, starts around 11 p.m. with musical entertainment and hot refreshments.

Best locations for viewing the midnight fireworks include anywhere in Grand Army Plaza, inside the Park on the West Drive, and along Prospect Park West between Grand Army Plaza and 9th Street.
