Happy Fourth of July

Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It's a day of patriotic parades, barbecues, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag. Photos above were taken at Rockefeller Center and Grand Central (Holiday Kaleidoscople Light Show). Today also marks the reopening of the crown of the Statue of Liberty, the symbol of freedom, since it closed after September 11, 2001.
