Yet Another RI'er reports:
Quick recap: it was awesome. I was afraid that it would be mobbed but it was far from it. It seems that pretty much everybody squeezed into the FFP and hardly anybody stayed in SP even though the view was excellent no matter where you were.Here's the the opening
and finale of the 2015 Macy's July 4 Fireworks celebration at FDR Four Freedoms Park.
Great job by the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) and FDR Four Freedoms Park - Thank You.
Will update with more pics later.

One last look at the 2015 Macy's July 4 Fireworks Celebration from Roosevelt Island.
At the end of the Fireworks, the crowd exited Four Freedoms/Southpoint Park and headed home in a very orderly manner
passing the Cornell Tech construction site.
There was not much a a crowd at the subway station to leave Roosevelt Island.
After the fireworks, some went home and others watched Independence Day movie at Firefighters Field.
