A Late 4th of July

I don't usually do anything special for the 4th of July, aside from hanging out with a couple of friends. This year I decided to take a friend who is in from out of town to the annual 4th of July fireworks in New York. The last time I went to see the show was years ago, and this year reminded me why! haha, it is a mad house, but thoroughly enjoyable with good company.

Nothing better than dirty dog on a 100 degree day!

Almost time for the show to start! Look at the masses!

I've lived in New York practically my whole life, and to this day I still yell "NYPD Freeze!" in my head whenever I see a cop car!

I'll admit, one of the things being back home has made me realize is that the best part of this city is just how different everyone around you is. You can be in a train cart with a total of 5 people, and they could all have such different stories and represent various countries, or they could have so much in common with you. Some days it's nice to just be around complete strangers and let your imagination run wild, its one of the great things about life.
