What the July 4 Fireworks Looked Like from Brooklyn Heights

See the little red oval? If you look hard, you can see a little bit of New Jersey's fireworks, as seen from Brooklyn Heights.

The Jersey City Freedom and Fireworks Festival was supposed to take off from Liberty State Park, which would have made it visible from the Promenade and BBP. But those plans were changed when NJ's government shut down, along with its parks and beaches.

The NJ display was moved to Exchange Place, sadly out of sight from Brooklyn Heights.

Those lucky Heights folks with balconies facing north (on an upper floor) had views of the Macy's display, but since it was moved north to Midtown Manhattan, it couldn't be seen from the Promenade or Brooklyn Bridge Park, prime viewing in years past. It was visible from Greenpoint and Williamsburg, however.
