So it is literally the biggest party of the year in Jersey City (#JC4TH)! The 4th Annual Freedom & Fireworks Festival is a thing and most if not everyone who is local will be watching on Tuesday. Events in Liberty State Park are scheduled to take place from 1-10pm, with the actual fireworks starting around 8pm. These are some serious 'works create by famed firework artist Grucci! Here are the 5 best places around town to watch 'em from.

5) Liberty State Park

If you like to be in the center of the action, issa party. Expect huge crowds (125K+). South House will have a beer garden featuring patriotic sangria, plus lots of food trucks and vendors will be on scene. Arrive early and plan to walk / bike / scooter / moped / hoverboard. Parking is extremely limited, and seriously, who wants to be stuck waiting in a line of cars just to be able to drive home? Security is tight, all cars/belongings are subject to inspection and no outside alcohol is permitted. Again: plan to walk and arrive early.

4) Boat

Have a friend with a yacht? Have some extra cash laying around? For the best spot in the house, consider a voyage on the Hudson. A literal front row view with a breeze. BYOB on a new level.

3) Your Rooftop

Live in a modern high rise a la One Journal Square, or Urby? Both of these buildings have decks for residents to enjoy amenities. Not dealing with the crowds, and hanging with neighbors is pretty cool. Huge bonus if you have a pal who has a penthouse with floor to ceiling windows facing south.

2) Colgate Clock

A little further away from the crowds, with direct waterfront views. Especially good if you don't feel like dealing with the crowds, yet still want an up-close view of the fireworks. Good news: arrive as close to 8pm as possible and you will be good!

1) With Friends

Wherever you choose to be, time is best spend with friends, new and old. Have fun and above all else, be safe!
