Happy 4th of July!

I’m missing 4th of July in NYC for the second consecutive year (last year I was in London, this year I’m in Cape Cod), but still wanted to pay a little homage on the blog here because I’ve had so many great 4th’s in New York!

4th of July in NYC

In 2011, I spent the 4th of July in NYC at Coney Island with two of my favorite people. We didn’t plan it, but we ended up being on top of the Wonder Wheel as the Macy’s fireworks were going off behind Manhattan. We could see teeny tiny bursts of fireworks just above the skyline all the way from Coney Island, some 13 or so miles away. It was the perfect offbeat but still appropriate way to celebrate Independence Day!
