Suggested Ages: All

Classic rainbow lights bedeck a tree framed by the Brooklyn Bridge. Drop off your letter to Santa at a festive mailbox.If Santa notices that your wishlist can be sourced right here in Dumbo, he may just give you $100 Dumbo Dollars to spend in the neighborhood as an early holiday gift (Santa will need an email address to expedite, since the reindeers are getting ready for the big day).

Animated trees from the masterminds at Augenblick Studios illuminate the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage 6-10 pm every night in December.

Unwrapped toys, winter coats and packaged, non-perishables food donations welcome; drop off in the lobby of Empire Stores.
