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.
