July 5, 2019 — Nyack will celebrate America’s independence  tonight with fireworks over the Hudson River. The Village of Nyack will launch its aerial show from the west bank shortly before 9p.
The Nyack display, which will be launched from Memorial Park, can be seen from any place in the village where there is a clear view of the southeast sky.

Nyack has a long history celebrating Independence Day. Read Nyack People & Places: The 4th of July Parade through Nyack’s Memorial Arch by Mike Hays to catch up on the village’s rich local July 4th history.

There will likely be a big crowd at Memorial Park, so we found a few places to catch the show and celebrate America.

  1. The landing at the top of Hook Mountain for a view from above.
  2. At Nyack Beach State Park you’ll be able to put your feet in the sand and grill up some burgers. (Note that you’ll need to walk into the park because the road down to the river is closed for repairs)
  3. The Nyack Pier at the foot of Main Street adjacent to the Clermont Condos.
  4. A Nyack Boat Charter cruise. Or, that kayak you portaged from Quincy to Nyack to just get away from it all.
  5. The storied view from Gedney Street.
  6. Piermont’s pier, because the town is called Piermont for a reason.
  7. Share the moment with Nyack’s permanent residents at high atop the hill at Oak Hill Cemetery.
