Last week's fireworks a whimper..

Some of you out there may have been sadly disappointed in the fireworks display as seen from the vantage point of Sunset Park. Apparently we weren't the only ones. As is always the case in this city, everything happens from a Manhattan centric view. We tend to elect governments of Manhattan when election time comes around and that is where most of the city money is spent. In any case, I ran across this piece over at The Brooklyn Rail that expressed the sentiments of those at the park on the evening of July 4th.
