2014 4th of July on East River

Does anyone have a suggestion for a good hotel or restaurant we could reserve to see the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks show on the East River this July 4, 2014. We have two kids and don't want to fight the crowds in the parks, deal with the lack of bathroom's, or get on a boat for 4-5 hours. I would appreciate any suggestions.

I just checked out the Macy's link again (I hadn't looked in about a month) and they're still not saying exactly where you'll be able to watch the show from. They have said that fireworks will be set off from the Brooklyn Bridge, but still no information as to how high up the East River you can watch from, or how low into the Harbor (if at all).

I'll bet that, as soon as the details are known, almost every place that will have a decent view will start selling tickets/reservations for fireworks viewing parties. The River Cafe is already doing so:


It's probably not a great option with two little kids...you could call and see, though, maybe they're making this special party family-friendly.

Another option would be a fireworks cruise.
