Most New Yorkers will look to escape the city’s hot and humid temperatures on the 4th of July this year by heading to cooler, outer city limits destinations such as the Hamptons and Jersey Shore. But you don’t have to leave the Big Apple in order to enjoy patriotic celebrations. NYC has plenty to offer. Here’s a list of places that will help you commemorate the country’s adoption of the Declaration of Independence from England on July 4, 1776 with a bang!
While it’s not exactly July 4, the night before Independence Day, Queens’ Citi Field will be the site of a spectacular firework extravaganza following the 7:10 p.m. Mets-Diamondbacks game.
