The Macy’s July 4th fireworks display will be popping off tonight, from a location further south on the East River than it has been in recent years, with the action centered around (and ON) the Brooklyn Bridge. Click here for our guide on WHERE to watch the spectacular, and read on below for today’s fireworks-related street closures.

Police officials said they’ve received “no specific, credible threat to public safety” at this time, but of course there will be a heavy police and counterterrorism presence. (If you see anything suspicious, tell a cop, call 888-NYC-SAFE [888-692-7233] or dial 911.) The fireworks, some of which will be launched from the Brooklyn Bridge itself, are scheduled to begin at about 9:20 p.m. and end at about 9:50 p.m.

If you’re planning on going to see the show for yourself, please note this advisory from the NYPD: “large backpacks, lawn chairs, lawn blankets, large coolers, large bags, umbrellas or alcoholic beverages will not be allowed in the viewing area. All restricted items are subject to search and/or seizure.” No dogs allowed either!

The following street closures begin at 2 p.m. today, and in some cases will remain in effect until 2 a.m. The NYPD is advising drivers to, well, not drive, and instead “use public transportation and avoid the following locations.”
