No need to be near the fire crackers to take pictures fireworks.

Can shoot as long as can find a place (usually in a secluded place higher up somwhere) to position tripod and get a good foreground &/ background for the fireworks.

What time will the fireworks be?

I came back from Chinatown not long ago.

Too bad that my camera is not capable of apertures smaller than F8. So can't capture the fireworks with more than 2 seconds exposure or get gross over-exposure with longer exposure. Otherwise, would have some very nice pictures of long fireworks trails. Will post some pictures in the appropriate forum after post-processing them.
