May 31st Fireworks from Southpoint for Queensboro Bridge Centennial

Roosevelt Island may miss out on this year’s July 4th fireworks as they move to the Hudson River but we will front row and center for the fireworks being planned for the Queensboro Bridge Centennial scheduled for May 31, 2009.

Per the NYC Bridge Centennial Commission website the Grucci fireworks will be from Roosevelt Island’s Southpoint Park. According to the NY Daily News the Grucci fireworks are being sponsored by John Catsimatides.

Update: Previously it was reported that tickets were required for this event, based on then existing pages at the Centennial Commission site LINK. Apparently the webpage was created in error as no tickets are needed for this event. This info is per Judy Berdy of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society.
