See Our Fireworks Photos, Shot from the Center for Computing & Data Sciences. They Are Awesome
BU’s newest building provides spectacular views of Boston’s Fourth of July tradition
As dramatic as the daytime view from the 17th floor of Boston University’s Center for Computing & Data Sciences is, it’s hard to top the nighttime experience of watching Boston’s Fourth of July fireworks from the new building.
Janice Checchio, director of photography for Boston University and BU Today, was there Tuesday evening to capture the spectacle. The building opened in December, so this was the first opportunity to see the annual July 4 fireworks display over the Charles River from there.
The clouds and brief rain may have dampened the event for some and the view of the fireworks wasn’t quite the same as on a clear night, but seeing the fireworks explode, reflecting on the water and on the silhouetted boats below from nearly 300 feet up in the Boston skyline, was a pretty magical experience.
