Happy New Year 2010!

2009 Tree Lighting Side View Arch

This photo is a bit belated from the Annual Tree lighting* at the Park December 10th. I’ve run a few photos of the lit Christmas Tree at the Washington Square Arch of late but it’s so pretty and historic all at once.

*Not to be a downer but having attended the Tree Lighting ceremony for the first time this year, recognizing it is one of the oldest traditions (older than the Rockefeller Center tree lighting), I think that the ceremony could be improved a bit. I gather the Washington Square Association is in charge. I’m sure it’s a lot of work but it really needs some fine tuning. Just my cursory thoughts on the subject.

More to come on the New Year 2010.Ā  Wishing you a great year to come!

  1. Happy new year to you too!
    Grateful for the bit of trivia…had no idea the Washington Square Park event was much older than Rockefeller Center’s! Not many New Yorkers do. Says much about their PR as well as management of the event.

  2. How long is the tree left up ?

  3. Hi, The Juicer. I know… it’s such a good PR thing to grab on to! šŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    Freddie, no word on when the tree comes down yet. If I know in advance, I’ll post something.

    best,
    Cathryn.
