The Lincoln Square BID's Upper West Side holiday tree was delivered and installed this past Tuesday! Thanks so much to the NYC Parks Department for braving the rain to put up our special holiday tree and to Domes Tree Farm for providing us with another terrific concolor fir! This week we will also string lights on the tree and hang glitter glass ornaments from Tinsel Trading. Then, in just 11 days you can watch the tree light up for the holiday season at Winter's Eve to kick off the celebration or as it's broadcast live with Amy Freeze on WABC-TV.
