Photos And Video: A&E’s Riverton Square In Harlem Holds 30-Ft Christmas Tree Lighting With Carols, Cocoa And Santa

The holidays came to Harlem Wednesday night when A&E Real Estate and the Riverton Tenants Association hosted Riverton Square’s annual Christmas tree lighting. A&E volunteers and residents of the 1,200-apartment complex lit a 30-foot tree while enjoying hot cocoa and singing holiday carols.

One hundred and fifty residents joined in the annual party and ceremony. Kids got a special visit from Santa who handed out candy canes and stayed for family photos.

“This is the best time of year in the city, and we are so delighted to bring a little bit of holiday magic to Harlem with our annual tree lighting. From our youngest kids to our seniors, we know how much residents look forward to this event,” said Maggie Brunn, President of A&E Real Estate.
