DC fireworks
Where exactly are the fireworks launched from?

I am trying to figure out where I want to setup a camera to get some shots. I might be able to pull some strings to get setup someplace cool, but I need to be sure where they are being launched.

The are launched for the roof of a hotel?

They are launched from an area on the mall near 17th and Independence Ave NW which is near the reflecting pool.You wanted a place to put a camera right? Unless you want to be underneath the bursting rockets...

Hotel Washington has a nice view of the fireworks.

My plan may not work. What does it take to get on top of the Washington hotel?

I have done stills in the past at another location and loved the way they turned out. What I need is darkness behind the firework. I could be below the fireworks, but with the street lights....,i don't think it will work where I was thinking of going.

They have a lounge up there so call them for info. I think they may have changed the name. I can't seem to find it on the web.

ETA It's now the W Hotel.

Hotel Washington used to be a GREAT place to see the fireworks!!!

My office building is near Pennsylvania Avenue (and the mall), but, the 'executives' have a "Private Party" on the roof every year, and us 'lowlife employees' don't have access.
