“23 Days of Flatiron Cheer”


There are many reasons to visit New York City’s Flatiron District, but the holidays are an especially great time.

If you’re a Mariah Carey fan, Sony Square launched The Mariah Carey Experience, an interactive experience to celebrate the release of her new album, Caution. The exhibition is open through December 4th, and features instagrammable photo sets, multimedia displays, memorabilia, and a pop-up shop (via Mariah Carey Official Website).

This year, the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnerships are putting on “23 Days of Flatiron Cheer” from December 1 – 23.

Also, see Happy by Studio Cadena: “Happy is both a figure and a place. A series of softly shaped and richly colored screens drape down from an open frame to inscribe a more intimate collective space and provide an analog filter to see the city in a different light. Softly swaying in the breeze, its overlaps and overlays continuously interplay with light, inviting passerby to bask in its rich saturated glow. It emotes and evokes what we all wish to be. This Happy installation is a simple devise to make you stop, wonder, and most importantly, smile.”

Here are some of our favorite events:
