NYC – Harlem Meer Gingerbread Christmas – New York City

Charles A. Dana Discovery Center, New York, NY 10029

On December 13th, 2001, the beautiful Dana Discovery Center was transformed into a Gingerbread House through the magic of illumination never before seen in NYC.

This event which included special performances by the Boys Choir of Harlem and a Gospel Brass Band made a December Evening, originally forecast as dreary and wet, one to remember. By the way, it didn’t rain and the weather was quite warm for a late Autumn Day!…could it have been a sign or a Godsend? Perhaps a Blessing?

Nonetheless, there were treats for the kids through Natural Ornament Making activities and refreshments as well….’nothin’ like Apple cider and cookies to make the evening warm and fuzzy! Don’tcha think?

Responsible for this festive evening is the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy who has lit the holiday tree in this part of Central Park for four years. ‘But this year, the dedication went to the children of the victims of September 11. As was mentioned: “…this holiday will be one of the most difficult in memory, the children of New York will need this celebration’s message of peace, hope and goodwill more than ever…”

Well, ladies, gentleman, members of the Central Park Conservancy and otherwise, I for one thank you for helping to heal the child within me.

The Illuminated Gingerbread house can be seen daily from dusk to 9:30pm until Saturday, December 29th, 2001.
