If you don’t enjoy fireworks, there is something innately wrong with your America gene and you should take care not to let the front door hit ya’ where the good Lord split ya’.

And here in New York City, we do ‘em up right. This year from not just one, but two sets of pyrotechnic barges set to light up the sky from the East River.

The question then becomes: from whence does a discerning gent watch?

The answer: a rooftop, of course. With cocktail in hand.

Hence, the NYC Rooftop Fireworks Guide, a handy compendium of the seven best spots to catch the show come sundown Saturday.

Panoramic views in Long Island City? Check.

Rooftop tacos and ping-pong Manhattan ways? Yep.

Craft cocktails in Williamsburg with unobstructed views and an overnight stay? Indeed.

So get out there and enjoy those fireworks.

And God bless America.
