New York Bus Trip - December.......What are holiday must see

I have arranged for my mom and I to take a bus trip to NYC on December 6th, we already have tickets to see the Rockettes but are wondering what else we shouldn't miss? We have already done a NYC sightseeing trip so looking more for holiday must do's? And restaurant recommends near Time Square, Rockefeller Center, 5th Ave??

There area few nice area to see during the holidays. Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is a great place to start. there is usually a light show projected on the Saks Fifth Ave building. Then a stroll down Fifth Avenue is always festive... Grand Central has a holiday market a light show on the ceiling every 30 minutes or so. Bryant Park is great place for skating and holiday market as well. Check if the New York Botanical Gardens has one of their spectacular displays as well.

The trees, the windows, go iceskating....

Frangipani started this post over over the weekend. It's being used to consolidate as much info as possible on being in NYC at Christmas - lights; windows, markets, trees, carols, etc etc - into one easily found spot:

If you are into Asian dining, Ruby Foo's is on Broadway at 49th St.

Also, if they still do it, Radio City used to do a sort of outsized puppet show on the 6th Ave corner of the building (47th St?)
