I came to Roosevelt Island this afternoon to hopefully capture pictures of the Macy's fireworks. After staking out a good spot, like so many here did, we all discovered once the fireworks started that our view was totally blocked.
But unfortunately for everyone, it didin't matter if we had staked out a spot on the other side of the 59th street bridge. Police had blockaded off the whole other side of the island, so no one could get a birds eye view no matter what. Boy what waste of a day.
