Santa Claus Is Coming To Town At Roosevelt Island Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony - Have You Been Good This Year? Bruce Springsteen Wants To Know

Roosevelt Island Holiday/Christmas Tree At Blackwell House Plaza

Last night was a nearly perfect setting for the annual Roosevelt Island Holiday/Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Blackwell House Plaza. There was a big crowd of adults and children

who enjoyed live holiday musical performances by the Westside Brass Quartet and Vocal Trio as well as Holiday Treats of hot chocolate, cider and small gifts from sponsors

A very nice job by RIOC and the event sponsors including Amalgamated Bank, Starbucks, Riverwalk Bar and Grill, Hudson Related, Nonno's Pizzeria, Urban American, Becker & Becker, & Dental Love Associates

I also liked the blue lights strung on trees by the Blackwell Turnaround.

The only night's drawback, at least for me, was that it was a bit too warm for early December when I expect and like a chill in the air.

Have you been a good boy or girl this year? Santa Claus and Bruce Springsteen want to know.
