PLAINFIELD, NJ — Each year since 2006, the non-profit Netherwood Heights Neighbors group in Plainfield has lit up the streets with approximately 4,000 luminaries that are made up of candles and bags filled with sand.  Most stay lit well into the night, and some even until morning.

Volunteers of all ages spend Christmas Eve morning assembling the bags, and placing them around the neighborhood, in and around the area between Watchung, Leland, and Woodland avenues, and East Seventh St.

Did you have a chance to drive around Netherwood Heights to see the annual display?

The Netherwood Heights Historic District is named for the Netherwood Hotel that stood at what is now the blocks bordered by Berkeley Ave., Denmark Rd., Park Terrace, and Belvidere Ave. It encompasses 99 homes located throughout the winding roads believed to be the original horse paths of the hotel, which was built in 1878 when Plainfield was the last stop on the railroad.
