When Are Hanukkah Menorah Lightings at Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza & Boro Hall?

Question: When Are Hanukkah Menorah Lightings at Brooklyn's Grand Army Plaza & Boro Hall?

Brooklyn celebrates Hanukkah with several public menorah lightings. The menorah at Grand Army Plaza, in front of the main entrance to Prospect Park and near the Brooklyn Central Library is enormous. It's actually lit by people standing on top of a tall cherry picker!

So, the question is: When can you attend a public celebration of Chanukah with candle lighting this year--specifically in Grand Army Plaza in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and in Downtown Brooklyn, this year?
