Celebrate Independence Day from Your Luxury Gateway Apartment

Jul 1, 2022

Independence Day is just around the corner, and the 4th of July celebrations are back this year! All the BBQing and fireworks have returned, and the holiday is shaping up to be the fun summer event we crave. Let’s see what NYC has in store this Independence Day weekend to enjoy the festivities.

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks

The 46th annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Show returns this year over the East River with a stunning display to celebrate our city’s hope and resilience. Starting this Monday at 8 pm, watch the fireworks light up the NYC skyline with a beautiful array of spectacular pyrotechnics enhanced by festive music.

Nathan’s Traditional Hot Dog Eating Contest

Head to Coney Island to watch the famous July 4th hot dog eating contest. Participants will compete to see who can down the most of Nathan’s classic dogs. The event is free and lasts from 10:30 am-3 pm on the fourth. Advance registration is required for attendance. And because no visit to Coney Island is complete without a spin on Deno’s Wonder Wheel, make sure you pay a visit. Coney Island definitely has something for everyone.

Host an Independence Day BBQ at Gateway

Stake out a spot on the rooftop terrace at Gateway to grill patties for your loved ones. There is no better way to spend a Happy 4th than a classic Independence Day BBQ with friends and family. There’s nothing more American than the traditional menu of hot dogs, hamburgers, and corn-on-the-cob. But you can always spice things up by adding new flavors.

Independence Day River Cruise

For a hassle-free 4th of July, let someone else do the entertaining by booking a spot on a special holiday river cruise. Liberty Cruise hosts two options this upcoming weekend—attendees enjoy drinks and dining while taking in the fireworks display from one of the best spots in the city.
