The Washington Square tree lighting ceremony took place last Wednesday amidst the rainstorm. The lights now come on daily from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. You can take part in caroling by the Arch Christmas Eve December 24th at 5 p.m.
p.s. A neighbor noted the “crime scene” tape alongside the tree.
At times it seems like things are a bit off, doesn’t it?
Maybe that’s a good thing tho’ — particularly if otherwise you end up with Credit Suisse coordinating tree lighting volunteers a la Madison Square Park or a huge holiday market taking up a vast section of the park as is the case at Union Square. Maybe we should be thankful for small flaws.
