The Park Avenue Malls Bring Holiday Cheer to the Neighborhood!

The Park Avenue Malls Bring Holiday Cheer to the Neighborhood!

The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association kicked off the holiday season on December 4 with the tree lighting on the Park Avenue Malls. As is customary, Santa Claus made a surprise visit to the event and thrilled the children by handing out candy canes, listening to their Christmas requests, and posing with them for pictures. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer stopped by for a brief chat.

After the mall lighting, the adults in the group adjourned to the bar at The Kitano Hotel for a spontaneous and jolly time of fellowship and camaraderie. It was wonderful to see new faces at the gathering.

On December 3rd, ten intrepid volunteers helped to make sure that the Mall and neighbouring streets sparkled for the tree-lighting on December 4th. The clean-up event is the second official Murray Hill clean-up event of the year. Clean-up events take place twice a year, in Spring and Fall.
