Through Sunday, January 2, 2022: Interwoven Remains On View at Flatiron North Public Plaza |  The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership, a nonprofit BID (Business Improvement District), is the brainy brawn behind the 10th annual “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” event, which lasts for… well, 23 days, the last of which happened on Dec. 23. But the brick and mortar centerpiece of the celebration will remain in place until January 2–a public art installation created in partnership with Van Alen Institute. Interwoven uses its location (the iconic intersection, Flatiron North Public Plaza) and design features (among them, by color-coded archway sensors set off by two or more people) to represent the coming together of New Yorkers as they come back to familiar, pre-COVID haunts. For more information on Interwoven and other “23 Days” features, click here.

Now Accessible Online: Chelsea Community Church’s 47th Annual (Dec. 20, 2021) Christmas Candlelight Carol Service  | CCC’s 47th annual Christmas Candlelight Carol Service took place on Mon., Dec. 20, at 6pm, online via Facebook and YouTube. The service included scripture lessons, choir singing, and veteran Broadway actress Karen Mason’s reading of the 1822 poem, A Visit from St. Nicholas—otherwise known as Twas the Night Before Christmas (its author, Clement Clarke Moore, donated the land for St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, where CCC meets).
