Larger-than-life snowpeople are taking over the Meatpacking District for the holidays!
Spanning from Ninth Avenue to Gansevoort Street, see the Meatpacking District’s first-ever holiday installation illuminating the neighborhood.
Lights on the Cobbles by Theresa Rivera Design features 10 individual light installations from towering snowpeople to glowing dandelions.
“We’re all ready for an extra dose of holiday spirit this season after all that the city has endured over the last two years, so we thought it was the perfect opportunity to bring a public holiday activation to the neighborhood,” said Jeffrey LeFrancois, Executive Director of the Meatpacking Business Improvement District.
Colorful neon lights and abstract shapes come together to create a whimsical winter scene. Roam under a glowing colonnade (repurposed from the L.E.A.F. Flower Festival for the holiday season) with a reflective plexi tunnel and cozy into the semicircle seating area with a warm hot cocoa from one of neighborhood’s local coffee shops.
“It’s been a joy to have a hand in bringing holiday festivities to the Meatpacking District and I’m honored to be involved in their first ever light display,” said Theresa Rivera, founder of Theresa Rivera Design. “I wanted to create something that felt festive, but in a modern, elevated way that felt true to the neighborhood. The installation we landed on does just that, so I’m excited to be able to share it with the Meatpacking community of locals and visitors alike.”
Make sure to take tons of festive photos when you visit and be sure to hashtag #LightsOnTheCobbles when you share! The display will be up through mid-January.
