The Lights: a Mini-Documentary About Greenpoint's Traditional Holiday Street Lighting

In this 6-minute mini-doc from Coolburns and Co., learn all about the efforts to revive the traditional holiday lighting on the 11-block stretch of Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint.

We were inspired to make this video after reading the wonderful story of the Manhattan Avenue businesses’ commitment to reignite the holiday lights this year on Greenpointers.com. Having relocated to Greenpoint ourselves just under two years ago, it is truly an inspiration to move into a community that not only supports its new residents, but strives so adamantly to maintain connections to its rich history. We felt that the business owners of Manhattan Ave. and other contributors deserve a sincere thank you for all their hard work this year. This is our way of giving back to them by telling their story. Our hope is to inspire more people to participate next year and keep the tradition alive for a new generation.
