NYP: “Macy’s is planning to pull the plug on its Fourth of July fireworks display near the Brooklyn Bridge — and revelers who counted on dazzling views in Brooklyn and lower Manhattan are seeing red.
Fireworks will light up the sky above five barges on the East River between 24th and 41st streets, unlike last year’s showcase, which featured a breathtaking display near the Brooklyn Bridge, according to Macy’s reps. ”

“Scrapping the show near the iconic bridge leaves neighborhoods including Battery Park, South Street Seaport and Brooklyn Heights in the dark, angry residents and business owners said.
Claire Long 26, a financial analyst who lives on Willow Street in Brooklyn Heights, said she and her husband may be forced to cancel their roof-deck bash.
“We may have to change our plans — there won’t be as good of a view as we expected,” she fumed. “We’re definitely bummed.”
Bar and restaurant owners who planned for stunning views expect to lose thousands of dollars.”

Tight on money? What if they had not cancelled those Trump ties?
