4th of July already?

It appears to be more or less the same as last year, including a special
viewing section for human-powered boats.

(excerpted below) and the chart.

Please share this info with all of your boating *and SUP-ing* friends.

The Captain of the Port New York has established a Special Local Regulation
temporarily restricting vessel movement on the waters of the Hudson River
in the vicinity of Manhattan, NY and Hudson County, NJ for the annual
Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Display (see chartlet below). This Special
Local Regulation will be strictly enforced on Thursday, July 4th, 2013 from
6:00 pm until approximately 11:00 pm. All persons and vessels shall comply
with the instructions of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port or the
designated representative.

All spectator vessels must be inside the designated viewing areas by 8:00
pm and in position no later than 8:30 pm. Vessels shall be required to hold
position (NOT at anchor) and not depart the section until released by the
on-scene Coast Guard Commander. This information will be broadcast via
VHF-FM CHANNEL 12, 13, 14, and 16. Coast Guard recommends all vessels
gather towards the center of the Hudson River.
All spectator vessels shall maintain a 100 yard distance from any Coast
Guard vessel at anchor, at all times.
