Dumbo Holiday Lighting Ceremony Recap

Dumbo Improvement District Executive Director Tucker Reed and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz last evening unveiled the First Annual “Dumbo Light Capades,” a display of holiday-themed light sculptures by local artists scattered about Brooklyn Bridge Park that will be on display until January 7, 2007. State Senator Martin Connor as well as many local business owners were in attendance. Dumbo retailer Jacques Torres offered hot chocolate to attendees, while live holiday music from musicians arranged by Bargemusic kept everyone humming.

After Marty Markowitz spoke about the great borough of Brooklyn and honored the bridge named after it, the architectural lighting installation illuminating the Empire Stores building in the Park was lit in green and red. The lighting is designed by Brendon Boyd, known for his work with such clients as Ralph Lauren, Adidas, Cipriani and The American Ballet Theater.
