As many of you are aware, the Macy's fireworks display, which is traditionally launched from barges in the East River between Brooklyn and Manhattan, will be relocated this year to the Hudson River, between Manhattan and New Jersey. Unfortunately, this means that we will not enjoy the spectacular view from the Brooklyn waterfront that we have in years past. It is unlikely that we will be able to see any of the fireworks from the piers off Columbia Street or from the Valentino Pier this year, as they will be obscured by the Manhattan Skyline. If you have come to the waterfront in years past to enjoy the show, we encourage you to make alternative plans this year.
