Yeah...that's another thing. Having to get around with my tripod and camera and lenses, in that kind of crowd, is kinda haunting!

I was about to start a thread like this.
I've been wondering if there's any Hudson facing condo's in NJ that will let photographers take pictures from their balcony for a fee.
My gf doesn't like waiting and to be honest I don't want to waste a whole day as well just for some fireworks on the evening.

I've tried getting a platinum spot at one of the restaurants in manhattan as long I could bring my tripod and camera, they never got back to me.

You could also see the fireworks from the top of the rock but it's not the most ideal spot either.
I think I'm just gonna book a cruise and just watch it with my girl, if the water is calm, then maybe take some pictures.

not ther best for photographing the fireworks but IMO it cool to be on the water during the fireworks.

Look of a fireworks sightseeing boat ride. Most have dinner / drinks etc.

Yeah, I thought about the cruise, but figured I would forget photographing fireworks if I did. My wife also not real crazy about the lack of restrooms, and the insane crowd..lol Hoping I don't cause her first NYC experience to be a horrible one..lol

you may want to inquire where the boats will take you for the sights , due to the fact that the waterways have a strictly enforced frozen zone that are rather large. They may claim you will see the fireworks , and you may just do that but from how far away .

Tripods can be an issue in NYC. Believe me, I was just there and got tossed out of the Time Warner Center for setting up a tripod. I did some Googling and found lots of sites warning about the restrictions on tripods. You would think for the fireworks they would expect to see folks using tripods, but don't assume anything. Ask first.

Here's what U do. From Port Authority bus terminal, take the 165 or 166 bus to to Weekhawken N.J. Just on the otherside of the Lincoln tunnel across the river from NYC, Get off at Hamilton Plaza, on Blvd East, walk one block over to Hamilton Ave. Also called the Bluff. You will view the fireworks there from the Jersey side of the Hudson River and a beautiful view of the NY skyline..
