BROOKLYN - Business owners in Brooklyn Heights are gearing up for Fourth of July festivities.

Merchants say they are expecting a big business boom in the area now that the fireworks are back on the East River for the first time in five years.

The owners of Monty Q's Pizza says the shop has extra dough on hand for pizza, and expect to make lots of deliveries Friday on bike.

While some owners are concerned about trash, the Montague Business Improvement District says there will be trash bags on the poles throughout the neighborhood to help stop littering.
