The Seaport’s July 4th celebration includes a free concert by New Jersey native rocker Scott DeCarlo, as well as a myriad of other activities. DeCarlo’s music possesses hints of country and a whole lot of rock and roll. Catch him on the Pier 17 stage at 3:00 pm.

Fireworks aficionados accustomed to viewing the annual Fourth of July display at The Seaport, will need to move to a location along the Hudson River this year. Honoring the 400th Anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage to what would become New York City, the pyrotechnics are scheduled to explode over the Hudson River for the first time since 2000. Announced viewing locations are between 24th and 50th Streets. Information is available at NYC & Co.
