Not everyone agrees with Erik Himmelbach's disappointed take on the Studio City fireworks show.
Hey. I, and several of my neighbors, watched the CBS Studio City 4th of July fireworks from the comfort of our own apartment balconies on Ben Avenue just north of the 101. Been doing this for years.
And the fireworks this year were better than ever.
Also from our vantage point, we can see a bit of the Hollywood Bowl works to the southeast and two other [poor] displays, one to the north and one to the northeast.
All for free.
Tell "no fun at the fireworks" to try getting a vantage place on top of a local building next year....or go into the hills above Studio City.
