NYers Celebrate End of COVID-19 Lockdowns on Fourth of July

New Yorkers declared their independence from the COVID-19 crisis on Sunday by heading to beaches, parks and prime spots for watching fireworks — free of the lockdowns, social distancing and masks that wrecked last year’s July Fourth.

In Manhattan, city dwellers and out-of-towners alike arrived early to get onto the FDR for the pyrotechnics set to start at 9:30 p.m.

“It’s on my bucket list, watching the Fourth of July fireworks in New York City,” said one woman.

“I got here around 12:30 p.m. I’ve been exposed to so much and there are so many things I want to do before I die.”
