Roosevelt Island's NY State Senator Jose Serrano tweeted this photo of the Macy's 2015 July 4 Fireworks seen from the FDR 4 Freedoms Park.


So, Roosevelt Island residents, be sure to register online tomorrow (Sunday June 26) before anybody else to get your tickets to view the July 4 Fireworks from Southpoint or FDR Four Freedoms Park

UPDATE 6/26 - As of 5:45 PM,

the tickets are sold out.
UPDATE 6/27 - Earlier this morning, I sent the following messages to RIOC President Susan Rosenthal and the RIOC Directors:
The July 4 Roosevelt Island July 4 Fireworks Celebration viewing at Southpoint & FDR Park online ticket registration for Roosevelt Island residents opened yesterday at 5 PM.

By 5:45 PM the online registration site said that tickets were "Sold Out".

Is that accurate? Were all 3500 tickets signed up for by 5:45?

Are there any tickets remaining?

Since a single person could obtain up to 4 tickets, do you have any info on how many persons signed up for tickets and how many tried but failed after the tickets were sold out?

Any statement from RIOC on this subject?
and:
As a follow up to earlier email below.

The online registration site now says tickets on sale starting June 27 at 5 PM.

Attached is screen shot from 10:45.


Is that a mistake?

Or were some tickets not available to Roosevelt Island residents at last night's registration?
