Happy 4th of July!
As I watch the throngs gathering below to view Macy’s Fireworks Display in a few hours…
…I wanted to share some images of our patriotic spirit this week on Fifth Avenue in Midtown. More coverage of the fireworks will come tomorrow – including pics of the fireworks themselves – but for now, let’s start with a photo of Saks Fifth Avenue taken last week:
St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the surrounding area:
The Cartier Building:
The Rockefeller Center Buildings:
And The Empire State Building:
To be fair, though, I wanted to also feature some pictures of the Empire State Building as seen from here last night, when they were practicing the light show that will accompany some portions of the fireworks display tonight. It’s a laser show:
It’ll be fantastic! More tomorrow.
