Over the years of living in NYC – I’ve seen my fair share of Macy’s 4th of July fireworks. For 2015 they’re again Macy’s fireworks will be based in the East River (around lower manhattan). Which means one of the best spots to view the fireworks will be from the South Street Seaport Museum which controls Pier 16.
The South Street Seaport Museum has a limited number of tickets available for entrance into the pier. The views of the fireworks are SPECTACULAR (see the picture above – taken from the pier last year).
Typically tickets are $40 per person via the South Street Seaport Museum website, but since you’re reading DaDa Rocks you’re getting hooked up with a special discounted rate of $25 ($20 for museum members). Click here to purchase tickets at a discounted rate.
The details… Bring a picnic, BYOB (NO coolers or kegs!). Food trucks onsite. You will need to print your ticket and have it in hand in order to get through security and access Pier 16. Pier 16 will open at 6 PM. As always the NYPD might not allow chairs or blankets into the secure area (just a heads up).
