Best Places to View the NYC July 4th Fireworks

Pier 6

Since the firework barges are located near the Brooklyn Bridge and East River, Pier 6 is an ideal location. Pier 6 is in downtown Manhattan along the East River right near the Brooklyn Bridge. Enjoy views of downtown Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge then look to the sky for the NYC July 4th fireworks! Once the fireworks are launched, Pier 6 will treat you to an amazing view of the show.

Brooklyn Bridge Park

Multiple entrances to the park are opened, but you have to arrive early to enjoy this view. Although this sight is not advertised, you can definitely catch a great view from this park. The park also includes attractions for the day, but they do close early. Entrances to the park are also closed so be sure to give yourself enough time to grab a spot to enjoy the NYC July 4th fireworks.

Cornucopia Majesty Yacht

Set sail aboard a beautiful and spacious yacht with your family and enjoy views of the fireworks, a delicious dinner buffet, and an open bar for the adults. A live DJ on board will be spinning the top tracks of the year as you celebrate the birth of our nation. Enjoy views of the city skyline right from your yacht and an unforgettable view of the NYC July 4th fireworks to complete the experience. When the fireworks go off this year, will you be enjoying a front row seat aboard the Cornucopia Majesty?
