Rockefeller tree NYWell another holiday season has come !!! Celebrations, decorations, sales and everything is on !! But what is most special about the Christmas time would be the Rockefeller center tree and this time it is a 72-foot tall Norway spruce of the grounds of Tree King nursery in Hamilton, which is owned by the Varanyak family. The 8-ton tree will be erected over the ice rink on Friday November 14th.

Love the pictures of NYC. There is no place in the world that is as exciting as NYC at Xmas time. Nothing beats Time Square at new years eve either. I had to click on several of your google adds to see other parts of the city too. I have to admit though, the only time I miss the City is during the holidays.
