Up On the Roof

4th of July Fireworks on our Brooklyn roof!
Renewed holiday excitement this year due to DiBlasio bringing the fireworks back to the viewing pleasure of Brooklyn residents.  

What a treat to lay on the roof and watch all these amazing displays.

Ultimately, I totally dug them!

But first, the rooftop picnic!  Iced lemon seltzers, cold watermelon, veggie chips.  After work I did a quick salad resuscitation on these already pretty good chicken taco bowls from Habana to go.  I added corn and black beans, more tomatoes, avocado, shjuzzed up the meat and I took the greens and tossed them with fresh herbs and a garlic lime vinaigrette.  Much, much better!
At first the night threatened to be a bit cloudy.
....but they all drifted away by nightfall.
I was ready like 3 hours early for the festivities to begin.  Nerd Alert!
 By the way, coldest NYC 4th that I can recall.  We had to reconnoiter and run down to put jackets on!  What?!
