A Winter Wonderland Photo Op in the Meatpacking District | As charismatic as they are geometric, the Snow People of the Meatpacking District are on display now and ready to pose with you for an only-in-New-York photo op that travels just as well across town as it does across the (snow?) globe. Click Here for details on this interactive happening presented by Meatpacking (the Meatpacking Business Improvement District).
Winter Lights on the High Line: 7am to 7pm Daily, Through January 2, 2003, between West 15th & 16th Streets in the Chelsea Market Passage | You’ve got to be elevated, to get in on the ground level of this new, multiyear Holiday Season lighting installation brought to the popular West Chelsea park via a partnership between the High Line and Genesis Motor America. The 2022 debut installment incorporates “mirrors and reflective surfaces to create a captivating light display for visitors to enjoy anytime during park open hours.” Every hour on the hour there’s a two-minute light show, with the final show of the day (at 6pm) offering a supercharged version whose visual intensity is akin to the grand finale of a fireworks display. To view the High Line installation, enter the park via stairs at W. 16th St. or via stairs or elevator at W. 14th St. For more info, click here.
Caroling on the Streets of Chelsea on Tuesday, December 20: At 6pm, Meet at 315 West 22nd Street (aka St. Paul’s German Lutheran Church) | There’s music in the air up and down the tree-lined (and occasionally windswept) streets of West Chelsea–and that’s no figure of speech or stretch of the imagiation.

That’s when the 300 West 23rd, 22nd, 21st Block Association invites one and all to join them on a stroll around the neighborhood (with musicians!). So come caroling–but first, come to St. Paul’s German Lutheran Church, where the tuneful tradition takes off shorty after 6pm. See the below flyer for the same info you just read, but presened in a much more visually appealing manner!
