Join us for the 7th Annual Columbia Waterfront District Tree Lighting on Friday, December 13th from 6pm to 7:30pm at the Human Compass Garden (Columbia & Sackett Streets). Dan Kurfirst Trio will perform holiday music; there will be free refreshments compliments of local restaurants; and Santa will arrive on the FDNY Local 202 truck with surprises for children.
We are incredibly grateful to the event sponsors and the local Columbia Waterfront District restaurants and businesses that have made the event possible!
The holidays are approaching, a time to be grateful and a time to be giving. We are now accepting donations for our annual Toy Drive. Your donations allow us to give each child in attendance at our 7th Annual Tree Lighting ceremony a gift as well as donate any additional gifts to those of Visitation Church in Red Hook.
Wednesday’s Columbia Waterfront District Commercial Vision workshop was well attended by both residents and business owners in the community. The event kicked off with a brief introduction from Lindsay Donnellon, CGA’s Community Program Coordinator, and a retail market analysis from Vilma Heramia, CGA’s Executive Director. The room then met in small groups to discuss commercial corridor priorities. Each group presented back to the entire room with ideas ranging in popularity. To name a few, ideas included bringing back the B71, 1st Saturday/Art Hop events, incentivizing developers to keep their building’s street level for commercial, hanging neighborhood banners, creating safer pedestrian crossings, and restoring the historic clock on Columbia Street.
Visit us again in a month and we will have a conclusive report to share.
Whether you were able to attend or not, any business owner in the Columbia Waterfront District is able to join the CWD Merchants Association. Email us at email@example.com to let us know you are interested and the best times for you to meet.

Let us show our generosity as a community. Your monetary donations are badly needed!
