New Year's Eve Prospect Park Fireworks

Happy New Year everybody!

We spent our last minutes of 2006 beneath the annual fireworks display in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

They were setting them off about 300 feet in front of us and exploding maybe, six stories above our heads. By the time the finale came around I was gobsmacked. I couldn’t cheer anymore, or smile any bigger, I was simply in awe.

Any day is a fantastic day to go to Olmstead & Law’s most impressive creation (in my humble opinion), but if you find yourself without a destination in the last hours of 2007 jump on a subway and head for the arch. Just be sure to get there before midnight!
