      Rich Uncle Pennybags?

        Fits this area don’t you think?

      • ScooterStan says:

        Oh, my, aren’t we SO SUPERIOR to EVERYTHING that we cannot appreciate the efforts of the Lincoln Square B.I.D. (Business Improvement District) to create a pleasant community event that makes everyone feel good, even if for just one night, about their neighborhood?

        The graphic represents a classicly-dressed New York City snowman flipping a Black-and-White classic NYC cookie!

        So he wears a top-hat! That makes him rich? And, even so, is rich inherently bad?

        And what if there were NO Winter’s Eve? Wouldn’t all you faux-populists then complain about how the “rich” do not want to part with their money to make the “ordinary folk” have a pleasant time?

        Of course, you’d probably have a hard time expressing all that in fewer than 140 characters!

          “Oh, my, aren’t we SO SUPERIOR to EVERYTHING” – Scooter.

          Ypur personal attacks belie your faux ‘pleasant community event that makes everyone feel good’.

          Attacking others is not that good community spirit that you profess.

          I think you hit it, Scooter.

          Thanks for a (much needed) laugh.

            Dear Not-So-Independent-Of-Scooter,

            “Hitting it on the head” actually missed the head by a mile. There was no critique of Lincoln Center intended by my Comment, that was only a delusion of Scooter Stan.

            I merely noted the likeness of the image. Perhaps carpentry is not your thing?

      Is this for the general public or for patrons of Lincoln Center or some other community group?

      • West Sider says:

        This is open to everyone. WSR

      • Irene says:

        It’s for the public. A wonderful, fun night in the area — there is music all around and most of the restaurants have stands outside offering low priced bites of their signature dishes.

        Fun — you should go.

    3. Independent says:

      Tree lighting, obvious Christmas theme in graphic, yet no mention of the dreaded “C” word. One need not be a Christian to be less-than-sanguine about the War on Christmas.

      (Yes, Virginia, there really is a war on Christmas.)

      • irene says:

        Christmas became a secular holiday in 1870 the moment it was made an official Federal Holiday by congress.
