I was in New York in the week that sandwiched the 4th July. The temperature was so hot but so enjoyable. It made waiting outside for the fireworks so much better. We found a nice place on the East side to set up camp with thousands or millions of others. We had a ton of time to kill. Us dedicated people decided to show up a good few hours before it all kicked off. This gave me ample time to look around and take a few shots from where we were standing. It was a great sunset and I was in awe of the buildings around us.
