Breukelen Houses All Aglow With Festive Holiday Lights

You might remember Cynthia Jimenez’s spooky Halloween display at Breukelen Houses, which was showcased in the Canarsie Courier a couple of months ago. Jimenez is continuing the festive tradition of decorating the outside of her complex, at East 108th Street near Farragut Road, with plenty of colorful holiday characters and brilliant, welcoming lights. The Breukelen resident moved into the complex in 1998. The following year, she began adorning the building with inflatable characters and various figurines to match her favorite holidays. With new additions to her displays every year, she loves to see the looks on children’s faces when they see her building lit up. Jimenez also makes many of the decorations by hand and is grateful to the neighbors who made contributions to the display.
