Lincoln Center hosts a set of musical events per week for crowds to swing and move your hips to music all summer long. Tickets range from $17 to $25, with some including a drink and bag check, along with the obvious dancing time.
Fireworks on the East River are just one of the many spectacles that the city has to offer for the holiday this year. Party on, Americans. This birthday will be a rager.
Note: rain hitting you when hanging out of a helicopter going 100mph hurts, but it was totally worth it to see this. Was constantly wiping my lens from the rain and still had a bunch of light flare come through the photo but I actually don't mind it. Thanks you @nyonair and @flynyon for the most amazing experience!
