  • The High Line Hotel 180 TENTH AVENUE NEW YORK, NEW YORK 10011 (map)

New York City's holiday season officially logs on at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting at The High Line Hotel in Chelsea on Wednesday, November 28, 2018.

This year's 25-foot concolor fir will have a technology theme paying homage to West Chelsea's status as a world-renowned technology hub. (Last year's tree theme was vintage Christmas, honoring the hotel's storied history.) Brand new ornaments and sparkling LED lights will complete the theme.

Join friends and neighbors from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM for crafts, carolers, sweet treats (gingerbread! hot chocolate from NYC's only Intelligentsia outpost!) and hot toddies. Santa and Mrs. Claus have even agreed to pose for selfies that sleigh (er, slay). The lights go online at 6 PM - and you won't have to battle the crowds in Midtown clamoring for a glimpse of that other tree lighting.
