The monkeys are a way to promote neighborhood businesses during the holidays. Each monkey costs $100 in materials and an equal amount in volunteer labor. More than 200 of the monkeys are hanging in windows and from roofs, awnings and high balconies. Businesses and residents pay $25 to sponsor a monkey each December.
