4th of July with young kids

So we had originally booked a room at the Franklin Guesthouse based on suggestions from trip advisors for a stay in New York at the end of June and first week of July.

I see that Macy's announced that the fireworks this year are going to be on the east river and it seems very close to the hotel. Are there going to be crazy crowds in the area and is that going to be too close for an infant and a toddler to the point where we should think about looking for a hotel a bit further away?

I'm confused. Are you concerned about the crowds that will be watching the fireworks on July 4th - one night? You weren't planning on taking such small children to this event anyway were you? Anyplace with good visibility will be mobbed and not a great place for such little ones.

And it's not likely the crowds will turn ugly and try to burn down your hotel. Or that the street will be any more crowded than usual except for a few hours that one night. Why switch hotels?
