Celebrating the Winter Season at The Riverside in Manhattan!


As the holiday season heats up at The Riverside, we find ourselves in the excitement of preparing for Thanksgiving , choir practice for our Christmas special and our special resident council elections. In between these exciting events, there are three which we are “over the moon” excited about.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular

On December 3rd, some of our residents will be taking a trip to the world famous Radio City Christmas Spectacular. They will be seated in the orchestra seats to enjoy the renowned Rockettes perform their world-famous high leg kick, adding to the joys of the holiday season. Our residents look forward to this trip every year during the holiday season; and we can’t wait to take them on the fantastic journey, into one of New York City’s favorite holiday events!

The Riverside Tree Lighting

On Monday, December 4th, along with the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting , The Riverside will be having their very own lighting of our special 10 ft. tall life-like Christmas tree! We won’t have Ice skaters; but we will have a full list of entertainers to bring in the Christmas season at the Riverside. Led by our very talented music therapist, Corinne, our world famous Riverside Resident’s Choir will be performing their selections of holiday songs, The Caravan of Angels, who are Broadway singers and actors, will be part of the event, as well.  In addition, we will enjoy our famed soprano from the rehabilitation department. It’s an event that will touch the hearts of our residents and visitors alike. Don’t forget to stop on by and join us to start the holiday season off right!

Hanukkah Celebration
