Fireworks light up the sky in Hoboken

Spectators took in a patriotic view as the famous Macy's Fireworks display lit up the sky along the Hudson River tonight in Hoboken.

Many gathered to watch the 25-minute show in honor of America's 235th birthday.

Officials shot more than 40,000 fireworks from six barges that were set up on a two-mile stretch of the river.

The show marked the third straight year that the event was held on the Hudson River.
