Always totally stuck in a massive block of people with no clear line of sight.... and then the mass exit - yuck.

I recall seeing the spectacular display marking the 100th anniversary of the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge. Lots of people were drinking and not an open restroom in sight -- it made me wonder.

Marc, have you ever watched the line of red lights leaving the fairgrounds after the fireworks? We have, from the comfy and airy ledges of the Millbrook trail, all the while sipping wine and laughing at the slobs inching their way down county route 7. It may not be NYC, but getting into and out of town that night Suuuucks!

Also, you can see the fireworks from New Paltz, Newburgh, Beacon, Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Saugerties, Middletown. all at the same time. Pretty amazing.

Yes. But there are places where you are close enough to see them adequately, but not actually at the fair grounds or on Rt. 7... or dealing with the exit traffic. I would think that as a local you'd know that! wink

Also, 90% of the exiting traffic is headed north, back to 299 and NP. There are other ways to get back to the cliffs.

Actually you know the best show in town that night is at the Mohonk Mountain House. The fireworks almost rival the Towns fireworks, but they are set off right above the lake. the sound reverberating off the rocks, combined with the reflection on the water is really amazing.

That's where I would head, via mtn bike from the Trapps.
