On Friday, the Hester Street Collaborative unveiled this year’s Lantern Installation, which is becoming a Chinese Lunar New Year transition on the Lower East Side. The solar-powered lanterns, made by kids at M.S. 131, the Chinatown YMCA and Asian Americans for Equality, were hung in Sara D. Roosevelt Park.  The Lantern Installation program is now in its fourth year.
