Where is the best place to watch the Prospect Park Fireworks at Grand Army Plaza? Read below…
Brooklyn’s “biggest party,” featuring fireworks and more, gets underway on Saturday, December 31 at 11 p.m. at Grand Army Plaza (Interactive Map). Right around 11 p.m., entertainment and hot refreshments start at Grand Army Plaza. According to the folks at Prospect Park, the best locations for watching the fireworks are:
- Anywhere in Grand Army Plaza
- Inside the Park on the West Drive
- Along Prospect Park West between grand Army Plaza and 9th Street
To get to the fireworks by train, take the 2 or 3 to Grand Army Plaza station, or the Q to 7th Ave. Station (Flatbush Ave.). Buses B-41, B-71, and B-69 can also get you to Grand Army Plaza.
The New Year’s fireworks, sponsored by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, aren’t the only fireworks visible from Brooklyn. The more distant midnight show, over the Statue of Liberty and organized by the Grucci family, are visible anywhere on the Brooklyn waterfront where you can find a view of the sky over the statue, according to the Brooklyn Eagle. So parts of Red Hook, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian walkway are fair game for watching.
