DUMBO is where you’ll find one of Brooklyn’s best alternative New York City Christmas trees. The twenty-foot Fraser Fir from Domes Tree Farm will stand at the Pearl Street Triangle through the new year. The tree isn’t the only spectacle that will light up the night in DUMBO this holiday season.

Visitors going to see the tree will also get to watch a series of projected animations on the side of the Manhattan Bridge. The animations were created by the Dumbo-based Augenblick Studios. A 30-minute loop of animations created by 20 different artists will play every night through December 31st from 5pm until 10pm.
