Prospect Heights, Brooklyn (PIX11) – Miles away from the crowds and noise of Times Square on New Year’s Eve, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden put on a very quiet and subdued light show. Many visitors who attended said the bad weather made the experience even better.
The lightscapes at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden had an eerie beauty in the mist and mist and rain. There was stillness and simplicity.
“It feels like Japan,” said Nico Lopez.
“It’s magical to be here. The rain almost canceled it, but I’m glad it didn’t,” said Tim Lopez, Ditmas Park’s Nico’s father. “I think it’s phenomenal. I think they did a really good job with this light show.”
With over a million dazzling lights along the 52-acre festive pathway, a rainy night added to the magic and musical beauty of every installation.
Neelam Vaswani, Event Director at Lightscape, said: “It has a beautiful effect that creates a magical, mystical feeling.”
A colorful light display accentuates the trees and landscapes of the garden. In addition to the iconic winter cathedral, a reimagined fire garden makes an astonishing crackling noise when rainwater is added.
Lightscape visitor Joaneva Atamian said: “It’s really spectacular in music.”
Lightscape continues at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens through January 8th.
