The city is moving the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks display from Manhattan to Brooklyn this year for a simple reason: TV.
In years past, the city staged its show near the Water Club, on Manhattan’s East Side. But this year, with NBC, which broadcasts the display, having long expressed a keen desire to show more of the New York City skyline, the city and Macy’s decided that Kent Avenue in Brooklyn would be a better location. That means the barges that carry the fireworks — all 75,000 pounds of fireworks — will be stationed a little farther south in the East River, IN THE NEW YORK TIMES- 08.07.04
