Unique urban fireworks display in Southeast

The Southeast part of the San Francisco is unique, and home to diverse and independent folks.  No wonder, then, that the 4th of July celebration here is unconventional, uncoordinated and clandestine.

While other San Franciscans gathered for orchestrated fireworks, residents of Bayview and beyond either braced for "bombs" bursting in the streets, or were lighting fuses themselves.

Several residents gathered on the hill above Revere Avenue near Industrial for a panoramic urban view that came alive with fireworks that ranged from sparklers to professional grade.

From above Bayview, it appeared that neighbors and friends were launching festivities near Candlestick, the south side of Hunters Hill, and here and there throughout the heart of the neighborhood.  Potrero Hill, Dogpatch, and Bernal Heights neighbors also helped light the Southeast's night sky.
