LONG ISLAND CITY — Macy's annual Fourth of July fireworks will take place once again over the East River this year — which means widespread parking restrictions for streets on the Hunters Point waterfront as police clear the area for spectators.
There will be a "frozen zone" with no parking allowed between Vernon and Center boulevards from 44th Drive to 54th Avenue, starting from 10 p.m. on July 3 until 11 p.m. on July 4, according to an NYPD flier posted on the Queens Community Board 2's website.
The parking freeze applies to all side streets within the zone, and cars that park in the restricted area will towed, the flier states.
Just another friendly reminder to please move your vehicle, if it is parked in the following areas, by 10pm July 3rd. Thank you pic.twitter.com/kZGzAmzkn8— NYPD 108th Precinct (@NYPD108Pct) July 2, 2017
Macy's will be staging the production of its fireworks special from Hunters Point South Park, which will be closed to the public starting from the late afternoon/evening of July 3 and throughout the day on July 4, according to a spokesman said.
Viewers will be able to watch the display from nearby Gantry Plaza State Park instead.
For more information about parking restrictions, residents can contact the NYPD's 108th Precinct at (718) 784-5411.
