The Washington Square Christmas Tree 2011 Lit!


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.

    The tree looks rather bare. It could use some more decorations. Even the dollar stores have some great stuff.

  2. Hi TOM,

    This is true. You are not the first person to note this to me … it does look a bit bare. I’ve wanted to check out some other trees (Madison Square) for comparison out of curiosity. I guess they are going for a minimalist look. šŸ™‚

    Cathryn.
