Now... (Well, the other night... not now now)
Yesterday, we wondered why the lights weren't illuminated on the Tompkins Square Park holiday tree.
So we asked Robert McLean, parks and recreation manager, Manhattan District Three, what was wrong. He said that Park officials were aware of the problem.
"The tree lights worked one night and were off the next morning. We tried to fix the electrical hook up yesterday, but we could not get the lights to stay on," he said via email. "We have contacted the electricians and they should come out right away."
