Fireworks From Our Manhattan Rooftop

For the third consecutive year, the Macy’s July 4th fireworks were launched on the Hudson River and, for the third consecutive year, MSLO invited our employees and their families and friends to the rooftop of our office building at the Starrett Lehigh building overlooking the waterway.  This spectacular SOUSA Fireworks display began at 9 p.m. and lasted for 25-minutes.  More than 40,000 fireworks were fired from six barges, covering 2-miles of the Hudson River with an average of 1,600 shells launched per minute, many reaching a height of 1,000-feet!

Like last year, Angus Chen, our Executive Support Analyst, was at the rooftop with his wife Natalie and their friend, Willi Wong, a wedding photographer.  All had their cameras and kindly shared these images of the festivities for all of us to enjoy.  Many thanks!
