Scharff Weisberg Helps New York City Lites Create A Memorable 4th Of July With Legendary Fireboat

FireboatThe historic mingled with the spectacular on the 4th of July when Scharff Weisberg supported New York City Lites, which designed an innovative lighting show on the Hudson River for Duchess County Tourism.

This year marks the quadricentennial (Hudson 400) of the European founding of New York’s Hudson River Valley by Dutch explorer Henry Hudson.
