Macy’s is almost as well known for its extravagant celebrations (Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, anyone?) as it is for its department stores. If you’ll be celebrating the 240th anniversary of our nation’s birth in Brooklyn, it’d almost seem shameful not to catch the colorful pyrotechnics show blowing up the air above New York’s East River. Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, two of the best spots from which to view the Fourth of July fireworks, are both just a mile from NU Hotel Brooklyn. Other great viewing spots in Brooklyn include Williamsburg’s East River Park and Grand Ferry Park, and Greenpoint’s WNYC Transmitter Park.
