UPPER WEST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) -- A holiday tradition continues with a first-of-its-kind holiday lighting at Lincoln Square on Tuesday evening.

The Lincoln Square Business Improvement District is putting on its "Magical Lights" show in Dante Park. This year's sensory light show will dazzle the night as they change color and respond to singing, clapping, music and even the New York City soundscape.

WABC-TV's Chief Meteorologist Lee Goldberg and 7 On Your Side's Nina Pineda were there for the countdown.
