Downtown Alliance Lights Up Lower Manhattan with Shooting Stars for the Holidays
The Alliance for Downtown New York is lighting up Downtown for the holidays.
The business improvement district for Lower Manhattan installed 217 shooting stars and star clusters last weekend in time for the holiday season. The 161 shooting stars and 56 star clusters are strung up throughout the district and will remain up until the first week in January.
“Every holiday season, we try to do a little something extra to brighten the season for our 300,000 workers, 55,000 residents and six million annual visitors,” said Elizabeth H. Berger, President of the Downtown Alliance. “Happy Holidays to everyone Downtown!”
The fixtures—custom-designed for the Downtown Alliance in 1996—are owned and maintained by the organization.
