Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree 2012 | Holiday Lights New York City

New York City - Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree 2012

Once again the holiday seasons are upon us. The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center is a 80 foot Norway spruce that had survived Hurricane Sandy. This New Jersey native now stands proudly, strutting its full height and blinking its 30,000 multi-colored lights over the Rockefeller Center ice skating rink.

All around the city, the avenues are ablaze with dazzling holiday lights. One could even bump into Santa Claus along the way.

Strolling along Park Avenue is another feast for the eyes since Park Avenue is lined with lighted Christmas trees.

There are now many New York holiday lights tours showcasing some of these holiday illuminations. If the weather is mild, one could travel by foot to observe some of these holiday glitters. The above pictures were taken during a brisk walk from Park Avenue around Fifty Street towards the Rockefeller Center area. Added bonus: the smell of the Christmas trees and chestnuts roasting in the air.
