New York City has a spectacular new holiday light display: 650 lanterns that glow with ever-changing colors and form a massive canopy under the 10-story, glass-enclosed Winter Garden at Brookfield Place. Created by Rockwell Group, Luminaries opens to the public today, and will be on view through January 10th.
"The holiday season is so much about sharing moments with families and friends, as well as the act of giving that marks generosity and good will," said David Rockwell, founder and President, Rockwell Group. "Taking inspiration from rituals across the globe of offering light as a shared gesture, we conceived Luminaries in the Winter Garden to forge a new downtown holiday tradition in this monumental public space"
LEDs embedded in the lanterns create an all-day/night lighting experience. Choreographed light shows are scheduled throughout the day and evening. Visitors will experience a truly spectacular light show every two hours beginning at 10 a.m. and ending at 8 p.m. daily. The five shows are befittingly entitled "Snowfall," "Christmas Tree," "Ribbons," "Firecracker," and "Northern Lights."
