Fireworks Fever! (Time-Lapse Video)

In celebration of the upcoming incredible Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, taking place right in our backyard, here’s a amazing time-lapse video of last year’s view!

Once again, we’ll have the best view in town – right on the water at 25th Street!

As this is a private event, only open to Waterside Residents, there are no tickets available to the public – but the public is free to get a spot on the FDR, and Curbed has a list of some other great places to watch the Fireworks.

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.
