The days have gotten shorter, but holiday lights are sparkling all over the city to keep the nights bright. Columbia’s Morningside and Manhattanville campuses are all lit up, and so is Harlem’s main thoroughfare, 125th Street. Thanks to all of our friends and neighbors who came out to celebrate the lights in Manhattanville, and who joined in the fantastic annual parade put on by the 125th Street BID.

If that’s not enough to satisfy your desire for twinkly lights, here are a few more places uptown and around the city to see holiday lights.


The Dana Center at the Harlem Meer decorated with holiday lights.

Across the City

Ice skaters enjoy skating at the rink near the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center.
