Boom! Fireworks Friday Night From Liberty Island

A fireworks display will light the sky tonight—Friday April 20— at 10:30 p.m. from a barge near Liberty Island in New York Harbor, which should make it visible from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. McBrooklyn tips that the display is sponsored by event-planning company AlliedPRA.

    Good to know before my dog starts flipping out

    Well, they started a bit early, and by 10:30 it was over. An interesting view from the Promenade: storm clouds obscured the top halves of the higher bursts.

    Thank you for this heads up – I love fireworks and never manage to be in the right place at the right time.

    Because here in the heights we like to complain about free fireworks shows, I’ll just put out there that a) 10:30pm is too late to be starting a fireworks show, the noise wakes up kids, etc; b) what is the point of having fireworks all the way out there by Liberty Island where only a handful of people can experience the full effect (which also sorta cancels out point “a” above, but never mind that, I just want to complain); c) they could at least start at the scheduled time. The permit was for 10:30pm, not 10:15, so technically illegal?
    Have a great weekend. Let’s complain about the nice weather now. :)
