Rockefeller Center -Tree Lighting Ceremony 2012

Christmas in New York City

Hello world,

This is the first in a series of posts on the best places to visit and the special holiday events in New York City during the holidays and winter. Trust that you will not miss one post especially if you are planning a trip to New York. Tonight at 7pm the world’s most famous Christmas Tree will be lit at the Rockefeller Center in New York City. If yo are from out of state, please get there early so you can get a good spot. As expected, there is always a huge crowd.

Rockefeller Center is famous for many things New York. At the very top of the building you have Top of the Rock where yo get the most magnificent view of New York city. Inside Rockefeller Center there is also the famous NBC Studios (a daily tour is available) and several shops and restaurants. Of course, there is also the skating rink and not far away some really great stores.

Getting to Rockefeller Center is very simple if you take the subway. If you can get to Times Square you can walk over or you can take the B,D, and F trains to 47th Street Rockefeller Center. If you cannot make it tonight to the ceremony, the tree will be there until about January 7th or so. Try to get your picture before it starts drying up. If you follow me on Twitter you will see a photo by Friday the latest.
If you cannot attend – then watch it live on NBC – Channel 4.

Tomorrow I will write about Bryant Park, another must visit attraction when visiting New York at any time but especially in the winter.
