Surprise Fireworks Will Light Up NYC Tonight To Celebrate 70 Percent Of The State Vaccinated

70 percent of New York State has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine — and Governor Cuomo wants to celebrate.

The Governor announced that today (6/15) multiple firework displays would be going up around New York State — including in New York Harbor right here in NYC.

Landmarks will also be lit in blue and gold tonight, including our own Empire State Building and One World Trade Center.

Fireworks will start around 9:15 p.m.

“472 days ago, it was impossible to fathom that 70 percent of New York’s adults would have received their first COVID vaccination by this point. What felt years away has been accomplished in less than one,” Governor Cuomo said.

“As we celebrate lifting restrictions and resuming our reimagined normal, we also reflect on the hard work of New York State’s essential workers and we remember those we lost. New Yorkers have always been tough, but this last year has proven just how tough they are. Congratulations, New Yorkers, on all that your hard work has accomplished.”

You can find the full list of displays around the state here.
