    "The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear" With Buddy the Elf's love of Christmas, it was only right that he was brought here to see the largest Christmas Tree in NY.

    Always a great trip...but the line for the ice skating can take hours so you might want to get in there early in the day if you actually want to get on the ice

    Simply incredible. Anytime of the day, the tree is beautiful. There's no way to visit NY and not see the most famous tree of the city.

    Go Monday through Thursday. Less crowded. Or early in the morning before the sun rises to avoid heavy crowds.

    This is the meaning of Christmas, where the tree gets lit at the most popular place in the world. Rockefeller Center. I can't wait to see the tree light up next week.

    Very busy, you can't almost walk...the crowd is one big organism. Kevin would never meet up with mom here at the end of Home Alone 2...they would simply not find each other :).

    As spectacular as always! The Christmas lights show next door was a great addition to all that you can see here.

    It was packed! Best place to see tree without crowds is to approach from Today Show studios/Nintendo World... avoid 5th Avenue!!!

    It's that time of year again... the tree is up! Come to Rockefeller Center and see it now or after it's lit on November 30th. Happy Holidays!

    Selfie Sticks should be Banned - We had an amazing night out despite the Morons walking down the Crowded street with these obnoxious selfie stick.

    The grandaddy of all Christmas Trees has become as synonymous with NY at Christmas as Home Alone 2 and dodging shoppers on Fifth Avenue.

    Lights are only on from 4:30pm until 10:30pm nightly. That's right, the lights are not on all night, and the guards don't want to hear that you came all the way from Jersey. And don't blame Obama.
