Fireworks Tonight to Celebrate 70% Vaccination Rate – Tuesday 6/15 at 9:15 p.m.

To celebrate the milestone of 70% of New York adults receiving at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, the Governor’s office announced a fireworks display in 10 locations throughout the state tonight, including the New York Harbor. According to the New York Post, the fireworks will be visible from the Promenade starting at 9:15 p.m.

The Empire State Building will also be lit up for the occasion.

Also, effective immediately, all state-mandated restrictions are lifted in commercial and social settings.

See you on the promenade with chins out!

    Surprised the Empire State Building would parrot Cuomo’s spin. We’re not 70% vaccinated – 70% of adults have received one dose. 50% of the population is *fully* vaccinated. At any rate, protect your pets’ hearing tonight.

  • William Gilbert

    Gee, the 70% single vaccine level was also set by President Biden so I suppose you all have a problem with him also!

    Great – Now can local businesses start dropping mask mandates, please? Let’s get back to life.

    I know it sometimes feels unpleasant to wear a mask but to juxtapose mask-wearing with “life” is a bit extreme. Here we are, after all, survivors.

    If the 600,000 deaths are honored by the off-chance prevention of a single headcold transmission, I’d wear my mask inside of bodegas or whatever for the rest of my life.

    Indeed. Worth noting that in Japan, people have long worn masks in public. I somehow doubt they don’t feel they’re living their lives because of that.

  • Red Leader

    We can “get back to life” and wear a mask indoors. It really isn’t that big of a deal.

    Speak for yourself. The vast majority of us are not going to live the rest of our lives suffocating under a f%^ing cloth for no reason just because the rest of you are neurotic virtue-signalers.

  • Andrew Porter

    It was pretty. Promenade crowded but not jammed. Weather was gorgeous, too!

    Did a Google image search for “neurotic virtue-signalers” and “suffocating under a f%^ing cloth”:

    Why do you assume people are virtue-signaling?

    Why do you say people are suffocating from wearing a face mask?

  • StudioBrooklyn

    Actually yes! But not for that reason.
