July 4th

macys-fireworksJuly, 4th, 1776, USA were declared independant from England. Two century later, in 1976 Macy’s, the department store, organises the fireworks in NYC to celebrate America’s birthday. Interesting that the celebration of a  national day is sponsored by a private company … This year, it took place on the Hudson River to mark the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage where before it happened on the East side. July 4th is a family event, no drunk people hanging out. RB
