Closing Bell: Holiday Tree Is up in Red Hook

NY1 News ran a sweet story today about the annual tree lighting last night in Red Hook. Residents gathered in Coffey Park to light the 14-foot tree donated by the Chelsea Garden Center, which also teamed up with a local book club to donate toys and books for neighborhood kids. As Alice Tapia of the Red Hook Community Justice Center told NY1, “The community has certainly been through enough and it was a time to just keep on giving. The people who have suffered the most are the same people who are actually giving so I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart.”
