The staff of Sheepshead Bites and Bensonhurst Bean wishes all its readers a happy and safe Independence Day, a.k.a., the holiday Ned likes to refer to as [1] “the day the colonies outgrew their British britches and threw on some American denim.”

Whatever you may end up doing today — and from the look of the weather outside, going to the beach does not appear to be any of those things — please take a moment’s pause to consider the freedoms we Americans enjoy, particularly in contrast with other not-so-free nations, and let us be grateful to those who have sacrificed so much in order to ensure that we remain free.

Just a few reminders: On July 4, all subways, buses and the Staten Island railway operate on a Saturday schedule [2]. There will be no alternate side of the street parking today, and no meters.

Stay safe and Happy Fourth everyone! We’ll be back on Monday.
