Starting at the end of November, you can enjoy a spectacular light show at Hudson Yards titled “Shine Bright Only at Hudson Yards”. It’s one of the newest Christmas light displays in New York City. Shine Bright is an indoor-outdoor light and music installation featuring more than 2 million white lights illuminating The Shops, Public Square & Gardens, The Edge and Vessel. Every day at 5 pm, “the moments” invite spectators to get dazzled by a visual spectacle that is synchronized to festive music.

  • The exact dates for 2022 haven’t been announced, yet.

You can see the performance “Shine Bright” at the Shops at Hudson Yards at the northern end of the High Line.

I would walk along the High Line to the south end in the Meatpacking District. On the way there you can watch the skyline or stop at the Gallery District in Chelsea.

Hi, thanks for the information! Do you need to purchase tickets to see the lights? And are they on throughout the day or only for the show that starts at 5:00?
Thank you,


Hi Erin,
you are very welcome 🙂 No you don’t need to purchase any tickets to see the lights and you can see them the whole day!
