New York kinda sucks in the fall. There aren't too many trees here, so it's easy to completely miss the beauty of the changing colors. But for all it lacks in the fall, New York makes up for it at Christmas.
Firstly, unlike many other places that throw a string of lights on a tree and call it decorated, in New York, every light is carefully placed and wrapped around selected trunks and branches. The effect is a really beautiful, twinkly display.
Down on Wall Street, they're in the red (ba dum ching!)
And the stores are all decked out
Especially the Herald Square Macy's and its famed windows
But it's not just the big guys, the little guys like street vendors get in the spirit too
But there is one major epicenter in New York at Christmas. This year-round sculpture hints you're getting close...
And the Rockettes are performing their annual Christmas Spectacular show just down the street...
But what you're really here to see ...
Is the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, the center of all things Christmas in New York.
