To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s exploration of the Hudson River, this year’s July 4th fireworks spectacular took place over the Hudson rather than the East River. Of course, this meant every New Yorker – and photographer – had to choose a new sight line to view the show from. Contributor Jody Kasch climbed onto a 24th Street rooftop and captured these surreal portraits as 40,000 shells were exploded at a rate of 1,500 per minute.
