Chandelier Tree

As its name implies, this Silver Lake tree is simply a century-old sycamore with about 30 chandeliers suspended from its branches. But the illuminated tree, located on a residential stretch of Silver Lake Drive, is lovely at night as food trucks and devoted followers often frolick to the neighborhood's favorite art project. Consider kicking in a donation at the parking meter out front; it costs $200 a month to light according to creators Brion Topolski and Adam Tenenbaum.

I mean, it's a pretty cool thing to check out because I doubt it's anywhere else in the world. But, in the end, it's chandeliers hanging off tree branches. Great for a quick photo, but not much else. Also have to go during the times when it's actually on so plan accordingly!


I'd been dying to check out the chandelier tree, but unfortunately it was dark when my friends and I showed up. According to the site and the signs, we were well within the "on" hours and it should have been lit up. I was very disappointed but am definitely looking forward to heading back and checking it out. Beware though that there is always a chance that they might not stick to their schedule and you'll face an experience like mine. 

I finally made it out to the Chandelier Tree and it's absolutely beautiful! All lit up at night, it's really a sight to see! Agree with other comments that it's a great photo op!


Recently went to the chandelier tree and fell in love with it!! I highly suggest checking it out if you are in the neighborhood or have guests from out of town. Great photo op! 


I love casually driving visitors by this magical work of public art. I've not met a single person who isn't delighted by the sight! Sometimes I drive out of my way just to see it, even if I'm by myself. It makes me happy :) And it makes me happy that the community has embraced it!


The Chandelier Tree is beautiful and breathtaking at night. It's perfect for a calm night out, whether you're by yourself or with company. I enjoyed the calm cool breeze of the evening as I stared at the chandeliers swinging in the tree and lighting it up. After a long day, it's perfect to just enjoy with a cup of coffee or hot cocoa at night. A must see. #TOTastemaker


The Chandelier Tree is a piece of public art, a meeting place, a neighborhood landmark and a lovely reminder of all of the beauty and creativity that's scattered across some of the city's more unlikely spots. Come by at night when it's lit up, and throw a few coins into the donation meter if you're feeling generous.
