Good morning, East Village.

We return today after a weekend build-up to holiday cheer. EV Grieve has a report on the tree-lighting in Tompkins Square Park and the “Unsilent Night” celebration. Like many of our readers, some of us will be making a list, checking it twice, then schlepping around the stores this week, so brace yourselves for a slightly less busy The Local than usual.

Nostalgia still abounds, though, as Bowery Boogie offers a look at some footage from a 1928 silent film shot in Washington Square Park and other parts of the neighborhood that shows how driving in New York was a perilous activity even back in the day.

And Ephemeral New York takes in some of the architectural details at 704 Broadway.
