Central Park (New York) Fireworks Anyone?
Jul 7, 2014

The New York Philharmonic Concert in the Park series is happening over the next week and fireworks will go off at the end of each concert. There will be concerts in Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx and Manhattan.

Following is the list of scheduled fireworks permits for the concerts.

Wednesday, July 9, 9:30 PM
Prospect Park Long Meadow Ball field
Sponsor: NY Philharmonics

Thursday, July 10, 9:30 PM
Cunningham Park Field
Sponsor: NY Philharmonics

Friday, July 11, 9:30 PM
Central Park Cherry Hill
Sponsor: NY Philharmonics

Monday, July 14, 9:30 PM
Central Park Cherry Hill
Sponsor: New York Philharmonics

Tuesday, July 15, 9:30 PM
Van Cortland Park Ball Field
Sponsor: New York Philharmonics

The red dot marks Cherry Hill, the location for the Central Park fireworks.

I'm planning to shoot the fireworks this Friday, July 11, in Central Park.

Here are two shots I took last year in the Central Park. They were shot on two different nights as there is only time to shoot from one location.

This was shot from the western shore of the lake near the West Drive and 75th Street.

This is Bethesda Fountain, which is very close to Cherry Hill.

The concerts are scheduled to end at 9:30, but the fireworks started 10 to 15 minutes later than that last year. The fireworks last about 5 minutes.

This is an open invitation for anyone who would like to join me or just go on your own and post your fireworks shots here in this thread. It might be easier for some to get to Brooklyn, Queens or Bronx.

I'm thinking of trying a different shooting location in Central Park this year, but I haven't decided yet.

If you'd like to join me or have questions about shooting locations, please reply here or send me a PM.
