I'd kind of like to check out some fireworks, but I'm not really feeling ready to get out there and battle the crowds. So I'm wondering if anyone could suggest a place to watch fireworks that's OK, but not the greatest spot ever (i.e. there will be other people, just not, like, throngs).
I'm coming from Brooklyn (Bed-Stuy). Public transportation is OK, though ideally, nothing overly complicated (taking a subway and walking a bit is great; needing a page and a half of written directions is probably a bit over my head for right now).
I figure I might be trying to jerk off the impossible, but I also figured it was worth an ask.
