another fireworks question

Jump to last reply

I see that Macy's posted the viewing areas on their website today (I had been checking for weeks). We have been to NYC 3 times, always use the subway, but have never been to NYC for during a "special event".
It seems to me (but I know that locals know best) that the best place for us to watch would be:
• Montgomery & South Streets: From the north (viewing along the FDR between Manhattan Bridge and Montgomery Street).
My questions are:
We are staying at the Salisbury hotel and when I use Google maps, I can see that Subway F would be able to take us directly back to the hotel afterward and that the subway station is close to this access point, but it it reasonable to think we could actually catch the subway within a reasonable amount of time or will the crowds be huge and the wait long?
Other viewing points are (is there a better, easier option for getting back to the Salisbury hotel afterward?):
MANHATTAN ACCESS POINTS
• Brooklyn Bridge entry from St. James Place (Pearl Street) & Wagner Place (viewing both north & south of the Brooklyn Bridge).
• Broad Street and/or Old Slip at Water Street (viewing between Heliport & south side of Brooklyn Bridge
BROOKLYN ACCESS POINTS
• Brooklyn Bridge Park (piers 1-6): enter on Old Fulton & Furman Street, Joralemon Street & Furman Street or Atlantic Avenue & Furman Street.
• Brooklyn Bridge Promenade: enter on Columbia Heights & Pineapple Street, Montague Street & Pierrepont Street or Pierrepont Street & Remsen Street.
• The following pedestrian streets will be closed to all non-emergency vehicle traffic:
• Montague Street: from Court Street to Montague Terrace
• Remsen Street from Court Street to Montague Terrace
• Old Fulton Street from Hicks Street to Furman Street
• Furman Street from Old Fulton Street to Atlantic Avenue
• Columbia Heights from Montague Street to Old Fulton Street
• Hicks Street from Atlantic Avenue to Old Fulton Street
