Explosions Fill the Sky as New York's Summer of Fireworks Continues

Fireworks again lit up the night sky in Brooklyn on June 18, the latest evening to be overtaken by the sound of explosions this summer in New York City. Complaints about fireworks in the city have skyrocketed this summer. Between June 1 and June 14, New York City’s 311 information and non-emergency services hotline fielded 1,249 calls about illegal fireworks, according to city officials. During the same period in 2019, only 21 complaints were filed. This footage was taken in the Crown Heights area of Brooklyn. During the same evening, individuals in Bedford-Stuyvesant filmed themselves in the midst of a running “war” between firework-wielding residents. Credit: Jeff Cooper via Storyful
