America's birthday is celebrated anywhere in the country, and you can trust the city that never sleeps to give you a party you would never forget.

Whether people love to celebrate Independence Day with a bang or not, they will surely love these spots in New York where they would spend their time on Fourth of July.

New York Yankees Baseball

For a country like America with millions of sports fans, Fourth of July celebration will not be complete without watching a game; and what's better than watching it on TV? Witnessing a game in person, of course!

The Yankees are one of the most popular teams in the country and have won an impressive number of World Series championships. With legendary former players such as Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth, there is no wonder why the Yankees are adorned by so many people.

For people bringing their children into a Yankees game, it is advised to avoid the bleachers since some fans can get gritty with their language.

New York Asian Film Festival

For people who want to celebrate Independence day with a kick of arts and culture, attending the New York Asian Film Festival would be perfect. Already on its 17th year this summer, the festival screens a wide variety of films from art-house classics, cult favorites, and mainstream blockbusters from many Asian countries.

American audience can see amazing films as it screens in SVA Theatre and Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Macy's Fourth Of July Fireworks

Fourth of July is always synonymous with fireworks. Macy's has got it covered for people who want to be amazed by a brilliant pyrotechnic display. The department store company is set to light off more than 75,000 fireworks over the East River that are choreographed with a patriotic score to raise everyone's nationalistic spirit even more.

The fireworks display begins at 9:25 p.m. and lasts around 25 to 30 minutes. To witness the best view, it is recommended to go to the Heights Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo, or Frank Sinatra Park in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Empire State Building

Get up close and personal with the numerous fireworks display in New York at one of the most famous rooftops in the city — the Empire State Building. Although its $500 ticket is not the best for people short on cash, the new perspective on the fireworks-clad city will make it worth every penny.

The observatory will be open from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. and is standing room only. There is also an open bar and snacks for its guests.

Nathan's Famous Fourth Of July Hot Dog Eating Contest

People who are joining the widely popular Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest are not the only ones who enjoy the competition. Here, people will be delighted to see the unusual match where a group of eaters gather at noon to devour large amounts of Nathan's dogs and buns for 10 minutes.
