Seasonal Lighting Installed on Orchard Street

Last modified January 30, 2012 at 11:10 pm

Early Sunday morning, cherry pickers were deployed in full force to install the annual seasonal lighting along Orchard Street. As usual, the festive lights occupy the lion’s share of Orchard, but criss-cross at Grand Street. Every year, like clockwork. And if past is prologue, we can expect illumination just before Thanksgiving.

Now that the holiday season is one month behind us, the festive lighting in the neighborhood is officially kaput.  Early yesterday morning, the cherry pickers were commissioned to dismantle the LES logo and snowflake decorations.  Until next year.  This particular street scene was at the corner of Grand and Allen Streets.

One of the residents in the Blue Condo building decided to celebrate the holiday season with, wait for it, blue lights.  How clever. The twinkling ornaments are visible to the hordes down below on Delancey.
