Yesterday was a perfect 4th of July here in New York City: hot, hazy, and full of stuff to do. Because of the hot dog eating contest, and the fact that I'd never been there, we headed to Coney Island with some friends. It sure was fun. After some rest, we headed back out to see the amazing Macy's fireworks along the East River. Wow oh wow, but they were incredible. Best I've ever seen, by far. I want to see more fireworks right now! I've posted some pictures of the crowd-filled day: Coney Island and fireworks.
