This year's Macy's fireworks spectacular in New York City promises to be something different and amazing. Not on the East River this year, the extravaganza celebrates the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's discovery of the (what else) river!... and, fittingly, will be set off over the Left Bank of Manhattan (West Side). Get there early and bring cushions to sit on, lots of water, and an umbrella just to be safe. Viewing access points are along 11th Avenue at 24th Street, 26-30th streets, 40-44th streets, 47-52nd streets, and 54-57th streets.
