The 30-minute Macy’s Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular, this year titled "The Lights of Freedom," will begin at 9 pm on Friday, July 4 in two locations on the East River: off Manhattan’s 34th Street and just below South Street Seaport.

The corresponding musical program will be broadcast on 1010 WINS-AM radio, and WNBC ­TV will offer a live telecast of the fireworks show, which will launch 30,000 aerial shells and special effects.

Prime live viewing locations for the South Street fireworks are the Brooklyn Heights promenade, the uplands of the piers, Fulton Landing and Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park.

At 8 pm, the U.S. Air Force will perform a patriotic flyover.

The Macy’s hotline, (212) 494-4495, recommends the Brooklyn Heights promenade, between Joralemon and Cranberry streets, and Furman Street between Atlantic Avenue and Cadman Plaza West for viewing.

The police department advises using mass transit to get to the viewing areas. For MTA information, call (718) 330-1234.
