I felt like the fireworks were set off a little more north than usual. I normally sit near the bridge and have a fine view but this time quite a bit was blocked by trees that normally never blocked them. Tons of folks around us cleared out and ran to the river. My kid loved them though and that’s what matters.

I saw the guy who was operating it. It was a very impressive, heavy-duty remote-controlled… thing. He had it synched with his iPhone and it was capturing incredible aerial video of the crowd. After a few minutes the NYPD made him bring it down. I was actually reading this post hoping he had submitted some of the aerial images.

What was up with that creepy drone thing that was flying over the crowd last night?

The fireworks were beautiful!!! But, from where I was sitting, I didn’t hear the symphony at all. Did they play???
