Thursday evening is not typically one of the hottest nights to go out in New York City, but July 4 is one notable exception. The Macy's 4th of July Fireworks will launch 75,000 shells from the Brooklyn Bridge, a move from last year's extravaganza near Long Island City in the middle of the East River. It's going to be a busy night, and 6sqft has prepared a guide to prepare for it.

However, some lucky residents of DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, and Tribeca can enjoy the show from the comfort of their building's roof deck, if not their own living room windows. CityRealty has compiled a list of the best buildings to watch from this year; and after July 4, the following condominiums will enjoy spectacular views of the Lower Manhattan Skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the East River all year round.
