621. Find A Spot At Noon For July 4 Fireworks


621. Macy's July 4 fireworks show had just moved back to the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River. This pleased many Brooklyn and Queens residents. The fireworks were to begin at 9:20 p.m. It was 8:45. Troy took the 2 train to Clark Street. He took the jam‐packed elevator up eight floors to the Clark Street sidewalk. Police were everywhere. He followed the crowd walking toward the river. He could hear the fireworks, but could see little through the trees and buildings. Finally, he got to the last cross street, Columbia Heights. He was still 150 yards from the river. The intersection was packed. People were elbow to elbow. There was no moving forward. And his view was actually worse than the view near the train station. Troy walked back to the train station. He walked down the eight flights of stairs to the 2 platform. He waited for the train. 4.2
