The Meatpacking Business Improvement District announced that its iconic holiday light display will return to the neighborhood with even more engaging elements. Back by popular demand, the District’s festive installation of lights, seasonal planters, iconic Snowpeople, the illuminated colonnade and more that are ripe for photo-ops will descend on the neighborhood’s streets starting Thursday, December 8 through mid-January 2023.
Below are a few images from the 2021 Holiday installation.
Hector’s Cafe’ first opened its doors in the Meatpacking District when it was humming with packers and wholesalers moving from slaughterhouse to slaughterhouse, under the elevated, with trains running from West Side Yards south to St. John’s Terminal on West Houston Street. Much of this work began at the crack of dawn, with many of the workers beginning their day at Hector’s Diner.
