    • Gran Electrica: will be serving $10 frozen margaritas and will be open for brunch!
    • Superfine will be OPEN from 3- midnight, kitchen until 11pm. 4th of July bar specials all day and food specials to include brisket, burgers, fried chicken and takeout picnic boxes to enjoy outside!

When 9pm rolls around, make sure you’re in a seat to watch the fireworks over the East River! It’s the 40th Anniversary of Macy’s historic fireworks, and they’re sure to impress. DUMBO’s got a front seat to all of the action–but some planning is needed. Check out the operations changes here.

Macy’s Fireworks will light up at approximately 9:20pm. Here’s where the barges will be placed:
