Here it is, folks, your classic First Night of Hanukkah photo — Mayor Bloomberg lighting the Park Slope menorah. Let there be light.

Hanukkah continues for seven more crazy nights. Check out Borough President Markowitz’s own menorah-lighting ceremony tonight at Borough Hall. The main differences? Marty ain’t the mayor — and he won’t go up in a cherry picker.
