Where to watch the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks from in Brooklyn

Pier 5, Brooklyn Bridge Park
This a great place to watch the fireworks unfold. Right on the water there’s no buildings to block your view, a concession stand and has plenty of seating. It’s also set a little bit back from the Brooklyn Bridge itself, so you should be able to show up a little later and still get a good spot to watch the show. The sweetest spot is smack dab in the middle of Pier 5 and 6 right by the volleyball courts.

Squibb Park and Bridge, Middagh Street and Columbia Heights
This place is hidden in plain sight. If you’ve ever walked the full length of the Brooklyn Promenade you’ll find this sprightly park and walkway with oodles of views, and best of all, it’s set a bit back from the Brooklyn Bridge Park itself.

Grand Ferry Park Grand Street at River Street
If you saw Kara Walker’s “A Subtley” then you might have already stumbled upon this tiny, intimate spot of heaven by the Domino Sugar Factor in which the glorious fireworks will be on full display. It’s a little far from the action, but you can get yourself a pretty clear view down the river from the north side of the park and it’s unlikely it’s gonna be packed to the brim.

The Williamsburg Bridge Pedestrian Path
There’s no better way to view fireworks than from another bridge, and the grimier version of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge is no exception. You don’t even have to stand in the bike lane while you’re watching, since the south-facing side of the bridge looking towards the Brooklyn Bridge has the pedestrian path.

Berry Park 4 Berry Street
Get a Fourth of July and World Cup two-fer as this bar with the best roof in Williamsburg will also be showing the tournament quarterfinals airing at noon and 4pm.

Pick Your Epiphanie Bag Giveaway (ends 7/12)

Pick Your Epiphanie Bag Giveaway

Sponsor: Epiphanie Bags

Epiphanie was started four years ago by professional photographer Maile (pronounced Mylie) Wilson. At the time, there were no cute camera bags for women. She hated lugging around a separate, bulky man-bag. So she'd end up leaving her camera at home or shoving it into her purse wrapped up in whatever was nearby; a towel, sock, sweatshirt.
Obviously that isn't the best way to protect expensive gear. When she realized that stylish camera bags for women didn't exist, she decided to create her own line. And it was obvious that she wasn't alone in a need for them. When Epiphanie launched in 2009, there were already almost 10,000 people on the waiting list, with all kinds of funny stories about the different things they used to wrap up their cameras: diapers, pot holders, even maxi pads! Four years later, the collection has expanded from three to twelve styles and over 60 different bags that accommodate cameras, laptops and even backpacks for men.

Prize: Winners Choice of Epiphanie Bag from Available Stock
Dates: 6/28-7/12
Open to: US Residents 18+
