O say, did they see!
Kings County residents celebrated their independence in a big way this year as two patriotic pyrotechnic displays lit skies over neighborhoods across the borough.
Onlookers watched fireworks blast over Brooklyn’s northern reaches as explosives shot from barges floating in the East River as part of Macy’s 41st-annual Fourth of July show.
Event revelers in years past caught the best views from Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, and Red Hook, but Williamsburg and Greenpoint were the hottest spots to watch the show in 2017, with several area bars and restaurants hosting viewing parties and locals hitting their rooftops for the occasion.
And down south, Coney Island held its own spectacular display — and we’re not talking about Joey Chestnut scarfing down 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes — that drew Brooklynites to the nabe’s famous Boardwalk where they watched the sparklers flash across the sky.
