After five years on the Hudson River, the July 4 fireworks are returning to the East River this year, Mayor de Blasio announced on Monday.
It was a great run, and we knew this was coming. It would be hard for the mayor of New York to justify giving people from Hoboken such a good show and leaving Brooklyn and Queens in the dark.
Check out video from the 2009 celebration as filmed from Riverside Park below, and some more fireworks photos here.
