Brookfield Place (BFPL) will once again transform into Lower Manhattan’s leading destination for the holidays this season, announcing brand-new and returning festive activations throughout the end of 2022.
Brookfield Place’s holiday programming offers delights for everyone – from new events such as Après Hour and Selfies with Santa to returning favorites such as Luminaries and free performances of The Nutcracker by New York Theatre Ballet. The Rink also returns to bring friends and families together to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at Brookfield Place. Additionally, new retail and culinary experiences have arrived just in time for the holidays.
November 25, 2022 – January 6, 2023: Luminaries
This mesmerizing installation is a holiday tradition, featuring a canopy of colorful lights emanating from hundreds of suspended lanterns. Luminaries was created by the LAB at Rockwell Group for Brookfield Place, inspired by the season’s traditions of sharing, giving, and community.
Touchless wishing stations on the ground allow visitors to send a motion-activated ‘wish’ into the canopy of lanterns above, prompting a magical display of lights and colors.
Maestro returns for a second year as an interactive experience that invites guests to conduct their own symphony with Luminaries’ canopy of lanterns. Leveraging skeletal tracking technology, Maestro allows you to show off your creativity and display your own unique light show in unison with holiday music.
For every interaction at Luminaires, Brookfield Place will donate $1, up to $25,000 to Outreach, which offers high-quality, evidence-based behavioral health services for youth and adults in NYC and on Long Island struggling with substance and alcohol abuse.
At the top of every hour, Luminaries will display a light show featuring a selection of music set to the following holiday classic songs:
- Winter Wonderland by Michael Bublé
- Silver Bells by Tony Bennett
- Carol of the Bells by The Bird and The Bee
- Let It Snow by Pentatonix
