If you’re looking for something spectacular and unconventional to see this holiday season, you’re going to want to take a look at this. Created by design firm Rockwell Group and designer David Rockwell (a well-known Broadway set designer), Luminaries opened on December 2 in New York City, featuring 650 lanterns that glow in changing colors to create a massive, stunning canopy. Though Christmas lights and the tree at Rockefeller Center are New York City Christmas staples, we can’t help but appreciate this new approach to holiday cheer and festivities at Winter Garden in Brookfield Place, an office building and shopping center in Battery Park City. While many Manhattan buildings transform into ornaments in their own right (some of them even fastened with giant bows), the Luminaries display in Battery Park is an unusual taken on the season. See the photos below.
