New York City is well known for its dazzling display of fireworks every July 4th.   Unfortunately, those on the other side of the river in Jersey are on the wrong side of Chris Christie’s public park vengeance.   Liberty State Park has always been a standard July 4th location to relax and enjoy the fireworks and had been closed for a few days possibly through the holiday.  While the park has since re-opened, why not combine the other summer time perk of throwing back a couple drinks outside at a rooftop bar while staying in the Big Apple without losing out on viewing the fireworks.

Here are some NYC rooftop bars that are sure to offer up some of the best views of the city and fireworks to celebrate the holiday.   Happy July 4th!
