4th of July on the Hudson from AJ Chavar on Vimeo.

The way I see it, there are two sides to this story. The Brooklyn side. And the New Jersey side. The shores of the East River were awfully quiet this year. No Macy's barges. No crowds gathered in North Brooklyn to see the spectacle on the East River. This year, it was all about the Hudson.

To commemorate the Hudson River's 400th anniversary and America's 233rd birthday, Macy's moved the fireworks back to the New Jersey side this year. I was on the PATH train at around 9pm to view the crowds rushing to Exchange Place in Jersey City. If you missed it, please enjoy this amusing sped-up video I found on Vimeo. Shot from Weehawken, NJ.

Hope you all had a great 4th of July! Another great spot to view the spectacle would have been from the new High Line which overlooks the majestic Hudson. Good thing we didn't go there. They closed the High Line at 3pm that day. But we did check it out the next day. Pretty great! Post to come.
