There will be July 4 fireworks in the Big Apple — just not the way New Yorkers are used to them.
The Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks show will be spread out in smaller displays over three nights in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday.
The individual light shows will run five minutes apiece between June 29 and July 1 — with a grand finale that will air July 4th on NBC. It was not immediately clear whether the July 4 show would be a conglomeration of the smaller shows or something unique.
“The idea is very brief bursts, brief but mighty,” de Blasio said at his daily press briefing.
Hizzoner called the plan “very powerful, very moving — but also very safe.”
The smaller displays are designed to keep large crowds at bay in an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
