In NYC, Christmas it´s a synonym of Christmas trees!
They are all over the city and I´m listing above my favorite ones:
Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
When it comes to trees in NYC, there’s really no contest. Standing shiny since 1931, each year the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree stuns beautiful and impotent! This year, the 75-foot tall Spruce is approximately 80 years old and weighs 12 tons! It’s adorned with 50,000 multi-colored LED twinkling lights and topped with a Swarovski star with 25,000 crystals and one million facets. WOW!
New York Stock Exchange Holiday Tree
Wall Street trades up on Christmas tradition by bringing a bit of nature adorned with 1,000 strands of multi-colored lights, 500 ornaments, and a 6-foot glistening star, this 65-foot tall Norway Spruce has been illuminating since 1923.
New York Public Library Christmas Tree
Each year, the NYPL transforms into a festive winter wonderland with a range of activities for guests of all ages. You will not want to miss their most festive event of the year where you can enjoy seasonal music including carols, dancing, and jazz, or do some crafts and see magic shows.
Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Christmas Tree
A holiday tradition adored by everyone, the 20-foot Blue Spruce at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is adorned with 18th-century Neapolitan silk-robed angels, cherubs and realistic crèche colorful and charming figures hovering among its branches.
New York Botanical Garden Trees
Grown in northwest North Carolina, the 10 trees ranging from 10-20′ tall have approximately 400 strands of LED lights (that’s about 20,000 bulbs!) and the sight is also a must-see.
South Street Seaport Christmas Tree
The South Street Seaport arranges their own splendid holiday décor, and this year, they’ve joined the South Street Seaport Museum to put up a 30-foot Norway Spruce with “Constellation”-themed ornaments, in Seaport Square that highlight the historic ships.
Washington Square Park Christmas Tree
One of NYC’s oldest traditions, the Washington Square Park arch has been the stage for the stunning 45-foot tree since 1924, beating the first Rockefeller Center Tree by seven years!
Enjoy these shiny beauties!
