The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. I suppose this is because it is summertime, often on the water, and the holiday has a jovial and carefree spirit. There is no stressful gift giving...it's really just good, casual, down-to-earth fun.
In case you were across the country, I thought I would bring you some live shots of the 4th from my view on a balcony on Wall Street. Thanks to Macy's, these fireworks are an annual tradition for NYC. If you want to learn more, the NY Times has coverage here. Happy 4th!
