The tradition of lighting trees on Park Avenue began in 1945 when several Park Avenue families wanted a special way to honor those men and women who had died in World War II. Today the illuminated trees – which appear on the malls between 54th and 97th Streets – remain a symbol of peace and a reminder of the sacrifices made to attain it.

The trees will be lit on the evening of Sunday, December 8, following a ceremony outside the Brick Presbyterian Church.
