Possibly the most famous Christmas Tree in America. Beautiful, big and a symbol of all that is the holiday season in the United States. A lovely spot to visit during the Season.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, usually a Norway spruce between 21 to 30 meters tall, has been erected and lit every year since 1933. The star atop, known as the "Swarovski Star", was designed by German artist Michael Hammers in 2004.

The Rockefeller Center complex is a great multipurpose center point/plaza for various activities: morning show filming, US open showing, iceskating, shopping, and of course awe-inspiring. The art deco buildings here are architectural beauties.

Nice place to be especially in the winter with the ice rink but not much else I've discovered apart from shopping in this area. Mainly appears to be a hangout spot for people waiting to see a show or go on top of the rock, or take a break from shopping.

There's a lot of stuff to do there. The best time is still Christmas and winter when you can go ice skating. Remember to make reservations for most things though, because the tours and the top of the rock get crowded most days.

Rockefeller Center is one of the most recognized places in the world. The ice skating rink along evokes memories of Christmas specials of years past. It's very busy during the day because they tape the Today show there and thousands of tourists pass through. Still one of the coolest places to take a photograph in my book.

There is always something exciting going on at Rockefeller center and normally it has to do with NBC. There are concerts every friday morning in the summer and often on other days too. Of course there is ice skating in the winter.

Yes, it is gorgeous and magical during the winter. It is fun to watch the ice skaters and admire all the decorations for Christmas. I have never been there during the season and not seen some a couple get engaged or go all romantic for the crowds.

I love the Rockefeller Center at Christmas time! So much fun to hear all the tourist speaking in every language but english! So much fun to watch the people ice skating in front of the big Christmas Tree! Take a hot choclate and comfortable walking shoes! Read Mr. Rockefeller's inspirational words in front of the rink! Have fun!

Rockefeller center is a fun spot to visit. With its signature flags, statue of Atlas with the world on his back, and ice rink in the winter, it's always busy and a great spot for people watching. It was very exciting coming here, because 30 Rock (efeller) plaza is the home of one of my all-time favorite shows. The NBC studio is fun to check out and their gift shop has all sorts of NBC novelties. Swarovski and LEGO stores are also near by, sometimes Swarovski puts up beautiful crystal statues in the holiday season.

We went up to the TOTR late one morning and like many others, we found there was no line up to go in.
I do not like heights and found the experience moderately disturbing. The glass in the inside viewing area goes down too close to floor level for my comfort. When I sat down and looked out the window, the experience was alright as long as I did not look directly down. The outside viewing area was worse. Despite the high glass which encloses the area, there are gaps between the crenelations and acanthus leaf decorative bits which visually were too much for me. DH took some photos and they were great when you get back home and can look at them to point out features to those you are showing the photos to, but personally, I would not want to repeat the experience.
