4th of July Weekend in New York City- on the West Side

Seems like the fireworks are happening on the west side this year.  For more info and directions on the  fireworks spectacular, click here.

This will be a much better viewing of the fireworks thanks to the newly constructed Riverside park right off the west side highway.
