Fireworks are free even in the Big Apple -- and who doesn't like things that go boom in the night?
Some prime spots for bringing a lawn chair and a picnic basket while watching Fourth of July fireworks along the Hudson River in New York City include 12th Avenue and 24th Street, and along 12th Avenue between 26th-30th, 40th-44th, 47th-52nd and 54th-57th streets, according to LatinTRENDS.
Don't do what this fire chief did, though:

Let's just call that a learning moment. It must've been exciting, though. Safe + sane = boring.
Another heads-up: There's no cover charge at Pier I Café on 70th Street and the Basin Boat Café on 79th.
Did we mention the fireworks are free? Which we would hope, as it might be problematic to charge for looking at the sky.

Anyway, transit lines for getting there include the A, C and E lines, 8th Avenue; 1 Line on Broadway, uptown; and the M23 via 23rd Street, terminal at 12th and 23rd, and the M42 via 42nd Street, terminal at Pier 83.
Whether you see your fireworks in New York or Hooterville, though, happy Fourth of July!
