So far it had been a relaxing day in my Queens apartment and I just didn't feel like leaving my comfort zone. I also didn't want to deal with large crowds. At the last minute Mikey and I decided to walk towards the East River, at the edge of Queens facing Manhattan hoping to get a good view of the fireworks.
Little did I know that the view from this part of Astoria was so beautiful. Everything was picture perfect; the water, the lights, the city and the bridges. At that moment I couldn't ask for anything better.
