Stuy Town Christmas tree lighting

On Saturday, about 70 Stuy Town residents gathered at the Oval fountain for the annual Christmas tree lighting. Christmas Carolers kicked off the evening before the arrival of Santa Claus who led a countdown to the tree lighting with a “ho, ho, ho.”

Guests enjoyed free cookies and hot chocolate and cider and also picked up free necklaces and stuffed reindeer toys. Children got to take pictures on Santa’s lap nearby in the Oval Studio.

A Menorah lighting will take place on December 28.

  1. I went to see the Oval the other night and was so pleased with seeing such a beautiful tree. The colors are so vibrant! We live in such beautiful surroundings here…Five Stuy Café, Oval Study, an ice skating rink, etc….and .right in our own backyard!
