Fourth of July Weekend near Roosevelt Island

NEW YORK CITY - JUL 4: New York City Manhattan Independence Day firework show in Hudson River as annual traditional event to celebrate the birth of United States, July 4, 2010 in Manhattan, New York City.

With Independence Day falling right in the middle of the week on Wednesday, you have so many options to take part in Fourth of July festivities taking place the week prior or the week after! Take advantage of Patchogue’s coastal location for a beachy, summery Fourth of July near The Octagon.


July 4th Party at LIC Flea & Food – Cross over the river to Long Island City to party at the LIC Flea this 4th of July! Although the open-air bazaar usually stocks cool retro items and antiques, this Wednesday the Flea is hosting an Independence Day party and serving up brews and delicious smoked barbecue. Stay into the night to have an amazing view of the Macy’s Fireworks display!


Summer Beach Party on the 4th– What better way is there to celebrate the 4th of the July then by partying on the beach! If this sounds like your ideal holiday, head over to Riis Park Beach Bazaar in Rockaway Beach in Queens to celebrate in the sand and sun. They’ll be live music sets from a variety of DJs, as well as delicious food, cold beverages, and awesome vendors. The party starts at noon on Wednesday, July 4th and you can attend for free! Register at the site below.


Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks– Close out the weekend by watching the amazing display of Macy’s 41st Annual Fireworks show.  The show, which can be watched at different areas across Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn, will begin at 9:25pm on Wednesday, July 4th. Since the fireworks will deploy from the East River from 24th Street to 41st Street, you’ll be able to see the fireworks from Roosevelt Island. If you’d like a better vantage point however, you can head down to South Street Seaport for a spectacular view.
