For the last 10+ years, the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Show has been taking place on the East River, making it difficult to see from Hoboken + Jersey City. While the Jersey City Fireworks Show has created a great alternative to this update, in 2024, the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks show is again happening on the Hudson River, which means the area will be gearing up for some local and regional fireworks. Wherever you are in Hudson County, you won’t be far from firework shows — and in 2024, you don’t even have to head to the East River area of NYC to view the Macy’s Fireworks.

The Details

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Show is returning to New York’s Hudson River after more than a decade. The event has perturbed New Jersey residents for years, since it’s been virtually impossible to see fireworks from the East River for years. Luckily for local residents, Jersey City has taken over that job on the 4th, but Hoboken residents definitely got more of the shaft, depending on their proximity and views of Jersey City’s waterfront.

This year, Macy’s shares the barges for the spectacular will be lined up between West 14th and 34th streets on the Hudson River, according to CBS News.

“The location has bounced between the Hudson and East Rivers almost evenly over the years, and that factors determining the location include the show’s design, size and scale, safety needs, public viewing locations, and resources, which change every year,” according to its coordinators.
