5 Places in Brooklyn to Celebrate the Fourth of July

Vale Terrace at The William Vale

Enjoy spectacular views from Williamsburg at The William Vale. General admission tickets provide access to the open-air venue, and an American-themed buffet (hot dogs, pulled pork, corn on the cob, your usual BBQ favorites). A full bar will be available, with drinks available for purchase.


The Ides at Wythe Hotel

For guaranteed, unobstructed views of the fireworks and the Manhattan skyline, make a reservation for an indoor table at The Ides. Patio tables offer partial views, while standing room tickets are also available. The Ides will be offering an a la carte menu along with a selection of Fourth of July specials.


Kimoto Rooftop

Celebrate Independence Day with rooftop festivities—live DJs, panoramic views, free prizes and giveaways. Kimoto Rooftop is known for its Asian-inspired fare and exceptional city views. Put on your party attire and raise your glasses to a memorable Fourth of July.


Brooklyn Waterfront

If you want to keep it casual, save a spot at your favorite waterfront park. The Macy's firework show is launching along the East River, and given its scale, will be visible from various points in Brooklyn. Head over to Grand Ferry Park, East River State Park, Transmitter Park, or Williamsburg’s newest Domino Park for views of the fireworks.


Coney Island

Take advantage of all the activities, events, and entertainment that Coney Island has to offer on the Fourth. Start the day early—soak in some sunlight on the beach, check out Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest, stroll the boardwalk— and end the day with an impressive display of fireworks.
