Brookfield Place

Visitors are immersed in a canopy of light emanating from hundreds of suspended lanterns floating above the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place. Touch-free Wishing Stations on the ground allow visitors to “send” a wish to the canopy of lanterns above, translating the wish into a mesmerizing display of lights and colors.

Illuminate your holiday wish by sending a motion-activated wish or conducting the canopy of glowing lanterns above. For every interaction at Luminaries, Brookfield Place will donate $1, up to $25,000, to Outreach, which offers high quality, evidence-based behavioral health services for youth and adults in NYC and on Long Island struggling with substance and alcohol abuse.

LIGHT SHOWS (8am – 10pm):
View a special light show at the top of every hour from 8am to 10pm, set to the following holiday songs:
Winter Wonderland by Michael Bublé
Silver Bells by Tony Bennett
Carol of the Bells by The Bird and The Bee
Let It Snow by Pentatonix
