When people ask me, “What’s the best place to view the 4th of July Macy’s Fireworks?” … I have to admit my bias.

I’ve lived in Long Island City for a decade. One of the highlights of living here been the optimal viewing spot we have of the East River. Each year, Gantry Park fills with thousands of people looking for a front-row seat to the barges and majestic display.
