Brooklyn Botanic Garden returns with ‘Lightscape’ exhibit Friday

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is back like never before this season with the grand opening of its “Lightscape” exhibit that is set to debut on Friday. 
It is just one of the exhibits on the mile-long stretch, which features over one million lights. 
It is an after dark, illuminated immersive trail that celebrates the beauty of winter in New York City. 
It’s a completely outdoor trail where visitors will also encounter light sculptures designed by local and international artists. 
“Lightscape” is making its East Coast debut in Brooklyn this year, with other locations in Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, San Antonio and also London and England. 
 “It feels really special to have Brooklyn be once again… It’s like a Paris you’re the city of light but tonight Brooklyn is the city of lights and will be the city of light from now till Jan. 9,” said Adrian Benepe, the president of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. 
Doors will open to the public on Friday through Jan. 9.
