Where to Celebrate Hanukkah in Lower Manhattan
Six events where you and your family can observe this year’s Festival of Lights below Chambers Street.
The Seaport will roast its candles Sunday, December 18, at sundown. But come early for latkes, live music, face-painting and even a little Hanukkah skating. Activities start at 2:30 p.m.
Another option is to swing by 18 Broad Street on Monday, December 19, at 4 p.m. and spend the holiday with live music, latkes and donuts.
Enjoy an open bar, sushi buffet, more latkes and a menorah lighting at a chic Lower Manhattan hotel rooftop: Tuesday, December 20 at 4 p.m.
On Wednesday, December 21, come through Ladder 15 at 42 South Street to serve dinner to local firefighters and, in return, get a look-around at all their gear. A menorah lighting will follow. The celebration begins at 4:30 p.m.
On Friday, December 23 at 6:30 p.m., come together with friends and family to celebrate the sixth night of Hanukkah — light some candles and bring your appetites.
On Sunday, December 25, commemorate those who arrived in Lower Manhattan 365 years ago at the location of the first Jewish community in North America with a grand menorah lighting, latkes and sufganiyot. Festivities begin at 4:30 p.m.
