Celebrate Fourth of July 2020 (Safely!) in Greenwich Village

With COVID-19 still very much a part of our daily lives, the Fourth of July will certainly look different this year. Large parties, gatherings and events are still off limits and the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest just won’t be the same without 20,000 people cheering on Joey Chestnut and the other competitors. Still, there are many ways to celebrate our nation’s birthday in New York City.
