It's not a Christmas vacation without going to Rockefeller Center to see the tree. Too bad 2000 other people had the same idea. It is nice even with the huge crowd. One time I saw Santa ice skating down below.

Would not go on the weekend, the street is completely blocked by pedestrians watching the Sacks shop show opposite. go early in the evening on a week day and you get a wonderful photo opportunity and a nice shopping experience in the area.

Try to go in the morning, then there will be less people, and you can get a picture, with no other people in it 🤗🤩

Went to Rockefeller Center to see the tree. Was not disappointed. At 75' tall it was quite impressive.
