125th Street Business Improvement District
Thanks to the support of UBC-TV and members of community organizations, the 125th Street Business Improvement District is pleased to present the Caravan of Lights Livestream. In order to keep the community safe, the Caravan of Lights will be offered online for Harlemites to watch from the comfort and safety of their homes. The Caravan will consist of large floats from the 125th Street BID and Manhattan Community Boards 9 and 10, escorted by the NYPD in a procession throughout Harlem to spread holiday cheer. All individuals on the floats will adhere to New York State and New York City public health regulations including masks and social distancing. Starting at Broadway and 125th Street, the Caravan will travel throughout Harlem in November. It will travel down Frederick Douglass Blvd, across Central Park North, and up Adam Clayton Powell Blvd, finishing on 125th Street. A map of the Caravan route is available below. The Livestream will be available here on the day of the Caravan of Lights! Please check back soon.
Buildings along the route are invited to participate by adding decorations to their buildings and then turn them on when the Caravan passes by their building. Window decor, lights, and other holiday and winter decorations are welcome!
The 125th Street BID encourages Harlemites to keep our community healthy! If you decide to watch the Caravan of Lights on the street, please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
