NY 1 excerpt -
Fireworks will be going off over Coney Island on the Fourth of July now that the city has issued a permit for the show.

officials would not give a reason for the hold up. It followed the

display from the Hudson River back to the East River this year to
accommodate spectators in Brooklyn and Queens.
