To mark the country's birthday the 2004 fireworks will take place at three locations this year: along the East River between 23rd and 42nd Streets at South Street Seaport between the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Entitled Beneath a Summer Sky, this year's celebration features New York City fireboats boosting red, white and blue water sprays 300 feet into the air plus, at about 8:00P, a flyover by four US Air Force A-10 jets. These tank-killer aircraft will thrill you to no end as buzz over each of the display locations Schedule 7:30P FDNY Fireboat Water Show 8:00P USAF A-10 Flyover 9:00P Television broadcast 9:20P Fireworks Display East River To see the fireworks all you need is an apartment with a view of the East River, or a friend who has one. Just kidding, any place in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens with a halfway decent view of the East River will give you loads of enjoyment. In Manhattan, the southbound lane of the FDR Drive will be open to the public from 14th to 42nd Streets. If you're not going to one of those great Manhattan parties this is your best bet. Areas under and around the FDR that are normally open to the public are restricted for this event Be sure to go before you go. There are no public facilities provided on the FDR Drive and the crowds make it impossible to hop over to 1st Avenue to pick up something with which to quench your thirst. Once you are on the Drive you are there for the duration; be sure to make a rest stop beforehand and to pack along a couple of bottles of water. If it's convenient, bring folding chairs and a small cooler. Public access to the FDR will be at 23rd, 38th and 42nd Streets. Access to many blocks around the area is restricted, so be sure to give yourself enough time to get a good spot, try to arrive about 7:00P 29 Pedestrian access to the FDR for the Midtown part of the show is at 23rd Street, 38th Street and 42nd Street only Our favorite location to view the fireworks is on the FDR Drive at 34th Street. You have barges to the left of you, barges to the right of you, barges in front of you. The shells burst right over your head; you feel the BOOOOM! way down in your stomach. The best way to get to this location is not the 34th Street entrance -- though many people assume so, there isn't any! Instead, leave early and use the 38th Street entrance to the FDR. From Grand Central walk east towards the River along 42nd Street. Keep to the right! You want to use the on ramp that starts at 38th Street, not the ramp that runs along the South side of the United Nations, this does not provide access all the way through. Crowd control measures change from year-to-year and specific street openings and access points might change. If you can't get to where you want to go don't try to buck the crowd; go with the flow and make the best of the situation Once on top of the FDR drive at 38th Street you'll hit a pretty big crowd -- people get lazy and tend to stop at the first available spot -- if you make it through, you'll find that the crowd thins appreciably and the FDR is almost empty when you hit 34th Street. Don't hurry after the show, you are not going to get anywhere quickly. Relax and wait until the crowd thins enough to stroll off the Drive In Queens the best bet is in the Hunter's Point - Borden Avenue areas. Try to sneak in as close to the shore as possible, preferably down towards 54th and 55th Avenues (Don't trespass!). And Don't Drive! If you arrive early and happen to find a parking space, please believe us -- through hard-learned experience -- that it will take you at least an hour to get out of the area after the show is over In Brooklyn try to get near the old pier areas between Kent and Eagle Streets in Greenpoint. Even better, try for a spot in the small park at the head of Newton Creek South Street For the Downtown show we've been told that any place south of the Brooklyn Bridge would a view of the sky should do. Prime locations on the Manhattan side should be Pier 17 at South Street Seaport, and anywhere along the water as far down as Pier 6, opposite Coenties Slip (though we don't know how limited the access is going to be in those areas) Pedestrian access to the FDR is from Pearl Street only In Brooklyn, we'd probably just head for the Esplanade or try for a spot down along Furman Street Statue of Liberty Liberty State Park is the place to be. If you're from Jersey, you better know how to get there ('cause we sure as heck don't) Shakespeare in the Park Ticket Information, Schedule & Directions As You Like It Midsummer Night's Dream Delacorte Theater | Central Park Enter the Park at 81st Street & Central Park West or 79th Street & 5th Avenue 30 to 77th Street & Lexington Avenue to 79th Street & Broadway to 81st Street & Central Park West Info 212-260-2400 | The Public Theater Tickets Free | 2 per person | Pick up tickets day of performance at the Delacorte Theater starting at 1:00P and the Public Theater, 475 Lafayette Street, from 1:00P to 3:00P Shakespeare in the Park is Joseph Papp's enduring gift to the people of NYC.
