DOT Temporarily Pulls the Plug on Some of Sunnyside’s Holiday Lights

The Sunnyside holiday lights typically mark the beginning of the festive shopping season and a bumper few weeks for local merchants.

However, this year, about one-third of the installations that typically line Greenpoint Avenue and Queens Boulevard have not gone up since the DOT is strictly enforcing its own safety guidelines.

Nine out of the 26 installations are not up this year – despite the same installations going up in the same locations in previous years, according to Sunnyside Shines, which oversees the Sunnyside Business Improvement District (BID) and organizes the lights.
