Did you see the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks outside your window? Some Watersiders did!
Last night’s celebration was a blast! Both during – and before – the fireworks!
As always, we hosted a July 4th party for residents and their guests.
And then we had front row seats to the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, which took place right on the East River!

More photos to come!
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.
Unlike clowns, there are very few people who dislike muppets. Jim Henson made us fall in love with them – with his lively, goofy, frequently singing creations – on The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth and more.
And beginning Saturday (July 22nd), the Jim Henson Exhibition opens in New York, paying homage to the man and his fuzzy, adorable puppets.
Coming to the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria,
“The Jim Henson Exhibition features a broad range of artifacts from throughout Jim Henson’s remarkable television and film career.
Among the nearly 300 objects on view in The Jim Henson Exhibition are 47 puppets—including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, The Swedish Chef, Statler, Waldorf, Big Bird, Elmo, Cantus Fraggle, a Skeksis, and other popular favorites—character sketches, storyboards, scripts, photographs, and iconic costumes. Film and television clips and behind-the-scenes footage are presented on more than 27 monitors and projections throughout.
In addition to the permanent gallery, the Museum will explore Henson’s career and legacy through education programs, live appearances, family workshops, and film screenings.”
Opening programs include screenings of his popular films (like the Muppet Movies. Dark Crystal and Labyrinth) with some hosted by special guests or with pivotal production people in attendance (like Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy, costume designer Calista Hendrickson and production designer Stephen Hendrickson).
There’s also a workshop where kids can create their own puppets.
And, as part of the series “Jim Henson’s World”, the museum will host ongoing monthly screenings and live events.
Enjoy the nostalgic magic!
