The last time I attended New York's annual Macy's massive fireworks show, it was the middle of 1997 - just months before I moved to Florida.
Back then, the nation's biggest Fourth of July blast was on the east side of town. This year's show was on the west side.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from the 20o9 fireworks show.
Next year, I hope to be on a boat in the middle of the river so I can see the entire show without a building or two blocking my view.
