July 29 Fireworks Over South Street Seaport

Those fireworks tonight in lower Manhattan, visible from Brooklyn were sponsored by Keefe, Bruyette and Woods, the largest full-service investment bank that specializes exclusively in the financial services sector.

Don't know what they're celebrating, but their stock is up 11.65% today.

According to Wikipedia, one of their offices was located on the 85th, 88th and 89th floors of the World Trade Center's South tower at the time of the terrorist attacks. 67 out of the firm's 172 New York employees died when the South tower collapsed.

Wonder if there's any way to find out about these fireworks displays before they actually happen!
