Independence Day 2015 at New York City. Fun events to relax and enjoy the freedom our Founding Fathers intended us to have. Enjoy your day, Yareah friends, and be happy with your family and friends!
There are plenty of fun events to attend. Here, some tips! Choose the best!
“It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.” Mark Twain.
Fireworks: The best fireworks show is the “Macy’s Firework Spectacular” on the East River. About 30 minutes of wonder! It can be seen in most places in Brooklyn and Queens.
“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” Woodrow Wilson.
Cruises: Of course, viewing the fireworks from a boat is one of the best ways to see the show, but since many of them have open bars, you have to be 21 or older.
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin.
Concerts: There are a couple of options for people who want to hear live music, but we recommend “Broadway’s Super Club” 54. Happy Fourth of July!
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Thomas Jefferson.
Choose your favorite event and enjoy this important day, because freedom is the base of our human essence and without freedom we cannot be citizens but slaves.
Definitely: “Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
