4th of July: Friends, Fun & Fireworks – at Waterside

Once again this 4th of July, we had front row seats to the fireworks – which was incredible!

The Macy’s fireworks took place on the East River – right in our “backyard”!

We also had a great pre-fireworks party with lots of entertainment. Our residents and their friends were a delight.

Our wonderful MC for the night was Nicholas Rodriguez who played Nick Chavez on ABC’s “One Life to Live”! He made his Broadway debut in Disney’s production of Tarzan, won the 2011 Helen Hayes Award for “Best Actor in a Musical” and was named “Top 10 Performers of 2010” in The New Yorker .

We also had a photo booth. Watersiders are so photogenic!
And the mayor came to visit!
The East Coast Band kept everyone dancing.

Pre-Fireworks Festivities – Fourth of July Party at Waterside – 2016

Sure, we had stunning views of the fireworks – and we’re pretty thrilled about that. 🙂

But a party’s not a party without the people!

And we have great people here at Waterside.

Just some of the fantastic folks having a blast at our pre-fireworks Fourth of July party:

Fourth of July Fireworks – As Seen from Waterside Plaza

Waterside Plaza View of the Fourth of July Fireworks - 2016

The Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks took place on the East River – right in our “backyard”!

Which made Waterside, once again, one of the prime viewing sites in the City!

Watching the fireworks from this up-close and personal was nothing short of mesmerizing.

It was a 3D spectacular – with no need for the glasses!

But that’s not all: We also danced it up with our residents and their guests!
