CITY ORDINANCES AND SAFETY TIPS
According to regulations, it’s illegal to use bottle rockets; throw or direct fireworks at buildings, people or areas where a fire could start; or use fireworks on public streets or alleys or in any park or public place within the city.
Also, no matter how excited you might be to light your fireworks as soon as you buy them, you can’t discharge them within 100 feet of a fireworks stand.
The Manhattan Fire Department provided the following fireworks safety tips on the city’s website:
• Fireworks should be discharged under adult supervision
