The city is filled with spectacular displays of holiday lights and decorations! You can revisit classic sites like the department store windows of Fifth Avenue, the Rockefeller Christmas Tree, and the over-the-top home-made displays of Dyker Heights. There are also a bunch of new cheerful sites to see.

In Lincoln Square, you’ll find new light figures seemingly somersaulting their way up the streets from 70th Street to Columbus Circle. Along Fifth Avenue, giant glowing light sculptures of toys line the streets. There are also exciting new public art installations to see while you’re out exploring!
