Brookfield Place New York
Winter Garden
230 Vesey Street
New York, NY 10821

Arts Brookfield has re-imagined its annual holiday festival for Brookfield Place in collaboration with the award-winning design firm the LAB at Rockwell Group. This holiday tradition in the heart of Lower Manhattan is built on the season’s traditions of sharing, giving, community, and light. Visitors will be immersed in a canopy of light emanating from hundreds of suspended lanterns. Three Wishing Stations on the ground will allow visitors to “send” a wish to the canopy of lanterns above, translating the wish into a mesmerizing display of lights and colors. For every wish sent by the public during the holiday season, Brookfield will donate $1, up to $25,000, to the GRAMMY Museum’s music education programs.

Take a 360° virtual tour of last year’s Luminaries at Brookfield Place.

Due to performances of The Nutcracker in the Winter Garden, Luminaries’ shows and wishing experience will be modified on the following dates:
  • Friday, December 1: 8am – 3pm
  • Saturday, December 2: No wishing experience or shows on this date


The GRAMMY Museum is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created as a partnership between The Recording Academy and AEG. Paying tribute to music’s rich cultural history, the one-of-a-kind, 21st century Museum explores and celebrates the enduring legacies of all forms of music, the creative process, the art and technology of the recording process, and the history of the premier recognition of excellence in recorded music. The GRAMMY Museum features 30,000 square feet of interactive permanent and traveling exhibits, with four floors of dynamic and engaging multimedia presentations, and is located within L.A. LIVE, the downtown Los Angeles sports, entertainment and residential district. Through thought-provoking and dynamic public and educational programs and exhibits, guests will experience music from a never-before-seen insider perspective that only the GRAMMY Museum can deliver.
