In 2009, for the first time in decades, Macy’s decided to move it’s annual pyrotechnic marketing campaign to the Hudson River in honor of Henry Hudson, thereby screwing Brooklyn out of any waterfront views. So, what’s their excuse for not moving it back to the East River for this year’s fireworks display? Some bullshit about being able to cram more barges on the west side or something.
