Photos: The Macy's Fireworks Show Returned to the East River Tonight
The annual Macy's Fireworks show returned to the East River tonight, after a five-year run of explosions over the Hudson. Brooklynite and Mayor Bill de Blasio worked on the campaign to move the show back, a decision that was announced in April.
Photographer C.S. Muncy brings back these images of the fireworks over the Brooklyn Bridge, photographed from Robert F Wagner Sr Place and South Street in Lower Manhattan.
Here are a few more images of tonight's show over the East River, shared on Twitter:
