Toys For Tots Giveaway in Chinatown (12/17/22)

「玩具贈兒童」活動 17/12登場 1萬件玩具免費發放社區兒童

Join the Chinatown Partnership/Chinatown BID and our generous sponsors/partners on Saturday, Dec 17 in Chinatown to celebrate the holidays! This year 10,000 toys will be given out to all the good children by Santa at Columbus Park, in collaboration with his elves from Marine Toys For Tots. Please note that the event will take place rain or shine, attendees should social distance while waiting on the queue, and that toys will be given out at random per child.

The primary goal of Marine Toys for Tots is, through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children.

AZIMUTH @ Pike Street Mall

AZIMUTH, created by Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong, is a recycled public artwork, previously installed in Washington DC as MERIDIAN. After over a year and a half outdoors, the modules were transported to New York City, rehabbed and transformed with a vibrantly colored makeover. Along with the final touches of a new ground mural, AZIMUTH provides a new community gathering spot on the Pike Street Mall, between East Broadway and Division Street. The pavilion activates this empty and underused public park median, creating a new place to pause, frolic and play. More Info

Some tips to prepare:

  • Minor coastal flooding is possible. If you live in a coastal neighborhood that floods, make a plan to protect your property, particularly in basements or garages.
  • On Friday, be cautious while traveling. Leave extra time to get to your destination. Drive slowly through high winds and rain, and be extra aware of pedestrians at intersections.
  • Before Friday, remove loose items from your yard, terrace, or rooftop. During high winds loose items can become projectiles!
