Back in 1776, John Adams wrote a letter to his wife predicting that America’s Independence Day would be commemorated with “pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports… bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

Though Adams was wrong about the actual date – he mused that it would be July 2, the day the Second Continental Congress completed revisions on the Declaration of Independence – he was absolutely correct about Independence Day celebrations. And one of the most patriotic spots to observe the holiday is in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty.

Fourth of July 2014 in New York City features a star-spangled list of events including the annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks. There, nearly 40,000 shells are launched into the Big Apple’s night sky at a rapid, electrifying pace, as songs like “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless the U.S.A.” blare loud enough to be heard across the Hudson.

But before night falls, America’s most bustling metropolis also boasts a slew of Fourth of July parties that Adams and the Founding Fathers would be proud of, including Independence Day cruises, parades, concerts, and much more.
