HACKENSACK

Finally, some GOOD fireworks (although they didn't wait until the advertised 9:15pm to start, so I missed a few while setting up).

I wish the second burst was the one that went off when I took the first shot, which - by the way - will look quite different next year when a 5-story building fills the 389 Main hole. BTW - I noticed that all bursts were above the horizon from my perspective, so I should still be able to see all of the Hackensack display.

The last shot is the offspring of the two that precede it.


MACY'S

Given the hazy sky, this was an unexpected surprise.............for a while. As you can see, it started off nicely, but then it appeared that so much smoke accumulated that only the tops of the huge barge bursts could be seen from this angle.


LEONIA

I thought I had missed them when I was concentrating on Hackensack's, but it turns out that they didn't even start until around 10pm - well after Hackensack's were over. They almost lined up with Fort Lee's The Modern 1 & 2 towers. I like the last one because it looks like the towers are about to be rolled over by a giant ball of fireflies (instead of fireworks).


MEADOWLANDS FAIR

The last shot shows a new ride at the Fair this year that flies you over the fireworks for around 600 bucks a pop.


All images are Bob Leafe and were photographed from my living room except for the Meadowlands Fair, which I shot from my roof.

I DID make a video, but that'll take a day or two to put together.
