Varick Street’s new holiday look
Passers-by on Varick Street might notice something new this holiday season — fresh, green trees with unique decorations. The Hudson Square Connection launched its “Varick Street goes green for the holidays” intitiative and has lined the street with dozens of trees and is asking the businesses along the street to handle the decorating duties.
This will be a great way for neighbors to connect with each other while spreading some holiday cheer throughout the Hudson Square neighborhood, said Ellen Baer, president of the Hudson Square Connection. By having our tenants decorate the trees in their own, unique way, we are bringing some of the life and creativity that exists inside the buildings out onto our streets.
