Luminaries at Brookfield Place
View the mesmerizing display of colorful lanterns created for Brookfield Place by the innovative minds at the LAB at Rockwell Group. You’re invited to interact with the magic of 640 lanterns that dance in a symphony of colors and intensity, composing a breathtaking spectacle above the Winter Garden. But that’s not all – every interaction at Luminaries adds to a greater cause. To celebrate the season of giving, Brookfield Place will donate $1 for every interaction, up to $25,000, to the GO Project to help NYC public school students.

Best of all, this radiant holiday experience is absolutely FREE! So, gather your loved ones and join us at Brookfield Place as we illuminate the heart of New York City with the spirit of the season. Come, make a wish, enjoy the light shows, and be a part of the magic at Luminaries – where every twinkle tells a tale of holiday joy and giving!


Illuminate your holiday wish by sending a motion-activated wish or conducting the canopy of glowing lanterns above.


View a special light show at the top of every hour from 8am to 10pm featuring one of following holiday songs:

The GO Project helps New York City public school students thrive in the earliest stages of their education through year-round academic, social-emotional, and family support. Since 1968, GO’s out-of- school time programs have equipped thousands of children with the confidence and skills needed to make academic gains, reach and exceed grade proficiency, enroll in high-performing middle and high schools, graduate on time, and achieve college success. By harnessing New York’s physical, financial, and intellectual resources, GO has grown from a group of volunteers serving 30 students on the Lower East Side into a $3 million organization creating equal opportunity for more than 700 students citywide.
