Find Your Brooklyn: Christmas Tree Lightings

Christmas is here already! It’s time to get in the spirit with one of the tree lighting ceremonies happening in New York City. However, the crowd, the security and traffic is headache enough when it comes to trekking up to Rockefeller Center.

So Brooklynites, we have a solution for you! Here are places you can visit to see a New York City Christmas tree without the hassle:

Grand Army Plaza


There’s something about Grand Army Plaza that’s truly magical, so to see this location transform into a winter wonderland will be spectacular! If you’re located in or near Prospect Heights, this should be on your list to check out, as the Memorial Arch will be adorned with lights accompanied by an amazing holiday tree. Lighting times are 4-5pm at Grand Army Plaza (Prospect Park, Brooklyn).

Park Slope

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around town. If you’re in Park Slope this time of year, you should go and see this beauty decorated in lights! Located on the corner of 5th Avenue and 3rd Street, you’ll be close to some of our great listings in the area.



To take in the beauty of this amazing tree, you’ll have to walk under “The Archway.” For the 10th year in a row, The Pearl Street Triangle will feature a beautiful tree more than 35 feet tall to make sure that Christmas reaches all corners of the borough. You can see the tree at Water Street between Pearl Street and Anchorage Place (Pearl Street Triangle, Dumbo).
